Where's Mum? Fledgling house sparrow on my garden fence.


Love you Mum.


I'm watching you. This photo was taken through my lounge window, the bird was about 30 meters away yet very aware of me. Flying ants (termites) were out and the birds were having a feast.


Nothing like a nice bath. These swallows were preening and drying their feathers after flying low over the water and splashing down on the surface. Each sparrow did this several times and then went and sat right on the top branches of a tall dead tree to complete their toilette.
