Over the past few days the resident House Sparrows have been particularly vocal as the adults have recently brought some youngsters into this world. Most of the time the young ones stay hidden in the Pittosporum or the Lilac and constantly ask to be fed but occasionally one pops out into the open.
As you can see from these images the downy fluff is slowly making way for this youngster's first set of real feathers.
Not sure this is the safest spot to be preening as we know a Sparrowhawk regularly passes over looking for a quick meal!
Time for some sunbathing while it waits to see if will get fed again. FAB.
