The other day, my blogging friend Takami mentioned that she likes sparrows, so when this Chipping Sparrow dropped in for a visit, I figured I would give him the starring role in today’s post. Actually, I gave him the only role, but I don’t think he’ll mind.
You often hear the phrase “a common sparrow” used – and although these little birds are certainly common in occurrence, they are anything but common in appearance. Just look at this fellow. His earthy tones are warm and rich, from his copper cap to his creamy breast to his wings, which seem to be the perfect blend of caramel and dark chocolate. I find him to be quite a handsome chap!
This last photo is one that I took awhile back, but I wanted to give a better view of his back. I find the different shades and patterns absolutely stunning. If I could find a coat with that design I’m sure I would be stylin’.
By the way, if you have a chance, check out Takami’s tiger cub pictures…they are amazing!
