Sparrow mother and baby. I like how the baby was all fluffy!

Decades ago, sparrows were the 'London Bird' but they have all but gone, now . Strange how these things happen. Thanks for the memory.

Wonderful capture of a mother and a baby. The baby is so lovely. The fur looks soft, so I'd like to touch it.
Have a great weekend, Elaine. :)

Fine close ups of these birds. I like how they are posed in a natural setting.
A fine shot.
