Photo Share: Red sparrow ready for take off

During spring and summer, House Sparrows switch from a more of a seed diet to insects. During nesting season they can catch over 1000 bugs a day. They catch insects in the air, by pouncing on them, or by following them as they pass their perched spot.

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.
