It looks to me as though everything I used to know as various finches in the UK are called sparrows in America?

I don’t know ... but in North america we also have a number of Finch varieties. A very different looking bird. Maybe we should have a Finch day?

That is very nice and beautifully framed with a nest of foliage.

This Sparrow day takes a lot of keeping up with :-)
But worthwhile

Thanks Richard! It does look nice and comfy with that setting.

I go out of town for one day and miss Sparrow Day?!! :cry:

I love sparrows! I'm enjoying browsing through the pages of beautiful photos of them. :-)

Here's my (late) contribution. Swamp Sparrow.

That is a steller shot, Richard. It almost looks like someone took a small paint brush, and dabbed a little blue around the eye.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
