House Sparrow

Here is a photo of a house sparrow that I shot during a hike in Bad Schwartau, a town that is smaller and more rural. I found a lot of sparrows on my way, there are much more in rural areas. I did already take several pictures of sparrows in the past, but this time I am actually not that sure if the bird in the picture is a female or male sparrow. However, it’s definitely a sparrow, that’s enough to know to tag this photo correctly for my blog. I hope you liked this photo. Continue reading House Sparrow

A Sparrow Searching For Prey

I didn’t take a lot of new photos over the last weeks, but as I mentioned often, this is not really a problem because my backlog is still huge.

Anyway, I still miss the country, it was much easier to find birds in … Continue reading Bird In The Garden

Female House Sparrow On The Gutter

My camera was inside and I was sure the bird would fly away if I would stand up, but I did it anyway and I was right, the bird flew away. I hoped that the bird would come back and it happened. The bird was probably building a nest in the gutter or near the gutter. I was happy that I had a few more chances to take the photo … Continue reading Female House Sparrow On The Gutter
