I know house sparrows are a feral species and I shouldn’t be admiring them. They are tenacious little birds though!
This parent and chick combo were hanging out under one of the bridges at Balyang, just before it filled up with water.
I’m enjoying photographing the chicks from the recent season, especially to capture the brightness of the beaks. I’m especially loving photographing the behaviour when they want to be fed. The crouch down and spread their wings slightly, open their beak and seem to shake a little bit. It’s very hard to describe. I’ve also witnessed the behaviour in a young red rumped parrot.
I’m not sure the photos are worth using on the bird ID website. I must admit, I am looking forward to winter when things will hopefully slow down on the observation front.
