We always love this time of the year...it confirms to us why we enjoy attracting & welcoming the birds to our yard with feeders, trees & most importantly - water. When the adults bring their newly-fledged young to the garden & introduce them to the feeders, what fun it is for everyone!! The wing flapping, chirping...and sometimes squawking...is delightful as the little ones look for a serving of seed from mom or dad. This family of House Sparrows has recently arrived and we are loving every minute!! We hope that you too are seeing some new arrivals in your area!! Yes...they're House Sparrows, but you must agree, they're pretty darn cute!!
