of this demanding House Sparrow Fluffer!
Here's Dad, trying to get some food in, himself.
and here's mum, trying if she can hear anything else than those demanding
Cries of her offspring.
I know this picture is mostly out of focus, but that is what I like about it: a fledgling is all movement at this stage. Fluttering of the wings and the screaming for more food.
Also, this photo shows why I call them Fluffer.
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!
The photos on this blog are all taken by me. If there is any picture you might want to use for any other than personal use, please drop me a line to the email address shown in the sidebar on the right.
