I have tried uploading this Sparrow movie several times already, over the course of its existence.
Having failed to do so, I thought it was better if I used Photobucket for this, which already holds a few of my creations and so I think it was about time to add my beloved Sparrows also.
During the summer months I hoped to make a better Sparrow movie than the one linked to this post, but other things took up my time, like the birds in the bay and things like those wonderful Wild Flowers, which I met all along the roads.
A message to Carin and Old Crow: I am sorry, we cannot divulge the secret of the Sparrow pods, hanging in the Fennel, or film these. We like to keep it to ourselves, however you do get the chance to observe the messy feeding habits of the hatched 'products'
Anyway, now that the colony has shrunk again and we are down to numbers between 15 and 7, it is perhaps a good time to remembers those 'other silly Sparrows which kept feeding on the peanut cake, seeds and other bird food spread out on the table.
So Here Are the Sparrows
LEAVE YOUNG BIRDS BE!!
Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!
