Sparrow Study

As common as these little birds are, did you know there are about thirty-five different sparrow species in North America?

Personally, I love sparrows: their happy chirps, and perky presence always makes me smile. The featured bird and this younger version above nest in a creeping vine on a nearby carwash. Although, I am in no way an expert, they fit the description of House Sparrows.

This Chipping sparrow, with the red crown, nests in a neighbour’s bush, and came out to pose for me in the rock garden.

Look how sweet this Song Sparrow is! Nature’s artistry is masterful.

Lately, I’ve been paying more attention to the more common birds, discovering they really are quite uncommon.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
