Garden Visitors: Tree Sparrows

By on June 21, 2012

What a beautiful morning surprise! Large flock of birds continously chirping at my window this morning. I look out and saw the tree sparrows. Immediately, I went outside without delay with camera on hand. Because of excitement, I didn’t wait any longer to watch them. I keep still in one corner pausing quietly and moved closer to get a good view. I don’t see any available hides beside me but, I was able to photographed the birds before they disappeared in seconds.

The Tree sparrows, a very similar and most common species of bird.A greyish-brown in colour and feathers appeared to white,black and brown combination.They look stunning with the bright blue sky at the background. They all sat on an old branch of a  Chico tree. They are active grooming exclusively in the morning.Though I hear sparrows chirping outside every morning, This is my first time to see them all together.A little bit close-up,You can see them sitting comfortably while grooming  with more detail.What a great number!

I was even amazed to see them cleaning their feathers, spreading their wings, lifting to the right and left direction. Some hiding their heads and scratched all over. I guess, It’s a daily morning grooming. I have enjoyed watching them cleaning everything.

I love the higher pitch sound of the tree sparrows,but it’s just like music to my ear. Bird watching is really exciting!I don’t need to head off  watching the birds in some areas. My own garden provides the natural environment for the birds to come.
