Often the Sparrows that visit my garden bird table leave their fledglings in the safety of a nearby blackberry bush and bring seed to them there. I enjoyed painting the soft downy feathers on the fledgling and the russet tones of the beautifully marked adult bird. Notice the bold dark 'bib' he is sporting as a sign he is a high ranking adult male. Sparrows and blackberries are so much part of our everyday natural world it could be easy to take them for granted, but how wonderful they are when you take the time to really look and how much you find you love them.
