House Sparrow

CommentI liked this sparrow's bravado and he didn't look alarmed by my presence one late winter afternoon. (Probably few bird photographers bother to take his photo so perhaps he was posing expectantly for me!) Luckily for me he kept still and I was able to take a close over-the-shoulder snap which still shows a bit of his dark bib indicating his gender. An introduced bird is not one I would usually choose for a competition. But this one was caught in good light and position, so for all these reasons I chanced entering it.
