On A Stick: Female House Sparrow

October 29, 2014  •  16 Comments

While House Sparrows aren't typically my target subjects, I couldn't pass up this rather big-beaked female for the "On A Stick" series. Besides, since I'm trying to see how many different species I can photograph on this branch, House Sparrows count just as much as any other bird.

I really like the composition in this shot, and how the blurred background, really makes the bird stand out. Great work as usual!

"Does this beak make me look fat?" - I think house sparrows count very much. Nice shot of this one.

She seems to have a lot to say. Like..."Yes, I count!" Great shot!

The sparrow is complaining that the feeders are empty
