I grew up hearing the sounds

I grew up hearing the sounds of the common sparrow. However, 40 years down i hardly get to see them in india where i live, forget about hearing them. Its a sad end. The rise of the apartments/concrete jungle has ensured the disappearance of these lovely cute birds.

We have a very large

We have a very large community of these sparrows living around us. We live in northeastern Oklahoma. We keep bird feeders out and suet. They love both. I love to wake early in the morning and hear their sweet little song.

I love these fearless, clever

I love these fearless, clever little birds and their cheerful tweeting. I have various bird feeders in front of the glass door to my garden – in Germany – so that I can watch their antics from my living room and I'm amused to see that they've learned to hang upside down from the fat balls and peanut feeder just like the coal tits do. What smart little opportunists they are!
