CommentI have decided to include this picture of a house sparrow because I love the colours and textures of both the subject and the background. The bird seems completely at one with its surroundings. Also, as house sparrows are so common in our cities, and often derided as pests, I enjoy seeing them in natural settings as they would have been before urban centres sprung up. In these surrounds, this tiny bird seems powerful and wise.
