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 latest House Sparrow brood

House Sparrows, Passer domesticus,

Last month the house Sparrows brought their latest Fluffers here for a Photo-feed. Most pictures I've lost however, don't ask me how! So here are a couple of others. The other birds like the Great Tit and Blue Tit never sit still long enough. Where the Robin has hid its young is an enigma.

This picture is of the juvenile House Sparrows bing fed by their dad. Columnist Dick Warner mentioned that he only saw female house Sparrows feed their young. he wondered if this was a trend among the House Sparrows. In fact, this is the first year that the majority of the Fluffers are being fed by mum Hse. Sparrow.

A lot of noise meant that the Pied Wagtails, Motacilla alba were here with juvie.

    We have tree sparrows here, but no house sparrows. Oh, I got very very lucky last week. We were in Edinburgh visiting a friend and I saw a goldcrest in woodland. So TINY! Much smaller than a wren. I think it was female as the colours were rather dull. I was so excited, but it was just too tiny and too fast to photograph.
