Hi Hilary. Firstly thanks for the interesting notes . We dont seem to have any Sparrows in the garden this year i think the Dunnocks have taken over. You have good deatil and colour. Well done TFS.
PS Dont replace the fence, plant a hedge instead.

Second only to Robins the House Sparrow is my favourite bird.
Your capture of him is amazingly sharp considering you took it through a window..(I will paint your fence if you clean my windows!!)
You have got him in a perfect proud pose with a lovely background..Perfect Work.
Have a great weekend and dont forget the race starts at 8 tommorrow.

A lovely little House Sparrow - guess they look exactly the same the world over. Wonderful pose and he has such a dreamy expression. Nice colors and details and a lovely setting. Just had my wall painted last month!

This fine capture of a cock House Sparrow draws the attention away from the flaking paint on the fence that it is on. This one is in prime condition and you show him from a fine POV with good sharpness and contrast against the OOF leafy Bg.
Thanks for sharing this beauty and have a good Sunday,

This is such a romantic picture, totally out of the 60's! I love it, and your fence looks great with the chipped paint, it makes your picture more romantic among the greeneries all around. I really like your composition too, with the bird's bill against the side of the frame, it is original and well seen. The bird's pose looks a little like he is teasing you and the lens. Superb, thank you!

What a cute sparrow you have pictured. I like the scenery a lot too. Bird glance into TN community is also very impressive. Well detailed trees create a wonderful BG for excellently reproduced main hero. Well done and TFS.

What I like especially about this photo IS the old paint and weathered wood.
It compliments the sparrow well.I get a lot of these birds around my house too, and always take the time to photo them.
Too bad I don't live close, or I'd build you a new fence...but keep some of the old somewhere else for photo ops.

Well done particularly since it was taken through a window. WOW!
My windows are entirely too dirty to attempt such a thing. ha ha

Lovely image of this Sparrow, Hil!
Great composition and eye-level POV.
Decent light and colours.
Sharp and crisp.
We've only had a few of these birds this year... last year we had loads! Maybe it's the Dunnocks that have taken over like Nick said...

These nest in my garden and they are as cheeky as you have made this one look. I love the alert and curious pose. Nicely framed, sharp and perfect POV
