[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sparrows can be found in farming areas and cities and suburbs. They prefer to live near human dwellings especially if there are bird feeders or birdhouses. Sparrows are around 14-16 cm long and weigh 27-39. They are very chirpy with Grey and brown colours. They can fly at 38.5 km per hour and reach speeds of 50km an hour, but not for long. Our man made environments have always been a source of food and shelter for the sparrow. They usually nest under the eaves of our homes and in holes in the walls and buildings or in climbing plants that grow on walls. The sparrow will raise three nests of 3-5 eggs. Both male and female help to incubate the eggs for 12-14 days. The fledglings usually fly out after 15 days.

This one fledged 2 days ago and has ended up in the long grasses in our garden - I think I probably have one more day left photographing this wonderful site before he is strong enough to go.
