[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this is the no.3 picture from the house sparrow series;
Hope you enjoy !


This 14 to 16 cm long bird is abundant in temperate climates, but not universally common, and is scarce in many hilly districts. In cities, towns and villages, even around isolated farms, it can be the most abundant bird.

The male House Sparrow has a grey crown, cheeks and underparts, black on the throat, upper breast and between the bill and eyes. The bill in summer is blue-black, and the legs are brown. In winter the plumage is dulled by pale edgings, and the bill is yellowish brown. The female has no black on head or throat, nor a grey crown; her upperparts are streaked with brown. The juveniles are deeper brown, and the white is replaced by buff; the beak is dull yellow. The House Sparrow is often confused with the smaller and more slender Tree Sparrow, which, however, has a chestnut and not grey crown, two distinct wing bars, and a black patch on each cheek.

Hi Septimiu,

This looks like a young one! I love the pose on the branch and the look on his face. Nice natural colors and wonderful details of his face, eye, and feathers. Once again a marvelous colorful background.

Hi Nemes,
another lovely shot of this cute little bird. the colour is natural and the diagonal placing of the branch makes this shot attractive.
Well used of light.


Buen encuadre y excelente pose del ave. Encuadre quizás algo abierto, aunque el resultado es sorprendente.
Un saludo: Jpsep Ignasi.
