[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a species of passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It is also known by the alternative vernacular names English Sparrow, Indian Sparrow, and Spatzie or Spotsie. It occurs naturally in most of Europe, the Mediterranean region, and much of Asia. It has also been intentionally or accidentally introduced to many parts of the world, making it the most widely distributed wild bird. It is strongly associated with human habitations, but it is not the only sparrow species found near houses. It is a chunky little bird, with feathers mostly different shades of brown and grey.(Wikipedia)

Hello Siggi,
Excellent scene and capture taken with great details, natural colors and good POV.

Hello Siegfried,
It is a picture with a great POV and we can see the bird very well! ... texture and details are very precises, the approach has done a good job. I think the colors are unusually warm, but they generate a certain artistic flair on the picture. TFS,regards, Jesús

Hi Siggi,

I love singing birds and this little sparrow is wonderful. She is singing her heart out and even showing us her tongue. Excellent details of her face and feathers. Nice warm colors that blend with the background.
