Photo of the Sparrow chick; A frequent visitor and a pleasure to watch & photo shoot. Here a chick is captured taking a deep siesta in the early morning; a questionable/suspicious time for one, don’t you think? Not much applied in editing except the background used to emphasis the storyline. Hope you enjoy the photo & the short story!
About the Bird
Sparrows are a family of small passerine birds, Passeridae. They are also known as true sparrows, or Old World sparrows, names also used for a particular genus of the family, Passer. The sparrows are indigenous to Europe, Africa and Asia. In the Americas, Australia, and other parts of the world, settlers imported some species which quickly naturalised, particularly in urban and degraded areas. Sparrows are generally social birds, with many species breeding in loose colonies and most species occurring in flocks during the non-breeding season. They may be the most familiar of all wild birds worldwide. Many sparrow species commonly live in agricultural areas, and for several, human settlements are a primary habitat.
