Photo Share: Fall Sparrow

1. Man has always had a love-hate relationship with the cheeky sparrow. They have been introduced intentionally to numerous countries around the world, including both North and South America, East and South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

2. Few birds are happier in the company of man than the house sparrow, and for much of the year it is rare to find them far from human habitations.

3. The House Sparrow takes frequent dust baths. It throws soil and dust over its body feathers, just as if it were bathing with water. In doing so, a sparrow may make a small depression in the ground, and sometimes defends this spot against other sparrows.

If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it on the Friday Photo.
