There are many species of sparrows worldwide like; house sparrows, rock sparrows to name a few… but this frequent visitor in the garden is a tree sparrow, finally came earlier than expected. A tree sparrow is a small bird, has a brown crown and white neck markings, as shown here the patch of white beneath the chin. You can see large flocks in rural and urban areas feeding on the ground as they usually prefer dry lands.
Tree sparrows are my loyal visitors in the garden, they always make repeated visits even without feeders, I’m not ready install that for now, I will just wait for them as they are always be welcomed around, our backyard is free anyway, that they come and go! What I want to create is a good artistic style for the close range, I cannot touch them so do not expect perfection, just a natural looking tree sparrow to show you.
My morning shots for our friendly visitors in the backyard
Commonly seen birds in the garden are the Woodpeckers,Tree sparrows, Humming bird and the Gray wagtail. Tree sparrows has Grey brown upper parts with white cheeks underparts. Other familiar species are present although some are beneath the roof too.I don’t know their names, it appears to be like House Martin. For now, I can’t remember any clues of identity to some that was seen before.
My garden visitor
Soon, I will care to place a good tree as nesting site and shelter for the birds as well as a big container for bird’s bath. The old chico tree has dried up, still looking for a good replacement. Some sparrows prefer to feed on the ground, the scrap of foods intended for the dogs are welcomed by most birds around. Lots of birds will adore my surrounding because it is a feeding ground for them, the presence of wild red berries that produces a sweet juicy fruit usually attracts the birds to come indoors. The fruit berries not only for the birds, they are safe for children to eat.
