    Is that a tree sparrow? How do you know the difference between an house sparrow?

    The Tree Sparrow has a chestnut brown head. House sparrow has a grey cap.

    I'm sure behind the one being fed is two more peeping, "MY TURN! NOT FAIR! HE ATE LAST TIME! HE ALWAYS GETS MORE FOOD! NNNNNOOOOOTTTT FAIR, MOM!!!"
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    I care - the Tree Sparrow is in steep decline and it's good to see them breeding locally
