Feed Me !!! Feed Me !!!

A new brood of House Sparrows are showing up at the feeders. Haven't seen a lot of sparrows over the summer for some reason. Guess they are feeding the natural way.

You can always tell you have new birds when you see them flying in 2's or 3's. Normally an adult with young ones close on their tail. Even though these young birds can eat on their own, the parents still keep feeding them. It's fun to watch the young birds eating away until Mom or Pop gets close. Then they start their little flutter and open their mouths and someone feeds them.
