this is the no.2 picture from the house sparrow series;
Hope you like it !

The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a member of the Old World sparrow family Passeridae, considered by some to be a relative of the Weaver Finch Family. It occurs naturally in most of Europe and much of Asia. It has also followed humans all over the world and has been intentionally or accidentally introduced to most of the Americas, sub-Saharan Africa, New Zealand and Australia as well as urban areas in other parts of the world. It is now the most widely distributed wild bird on the planet. In the United States it is also colloquially known as the English Sparrow to distinguish it from native species.

Hello Septimiu,

A nice close-up of this Lady House Sparrow. I guess Wikipedia knows something I don't - I have never heard this bird referred to as the English Sparrow. House Sparrows and Finches are the most common birds in Tucson. I love the pose and the colorful background. Nice colors and details of the bird.
