House Sparrow

House Sparrow on a branchHouse sparrows made it to Hawaii in the 1870s and are firmly established here. Where I see them most is at restaurants open to the outdoors, a common occurrence here in Hawaii. The sparrows mostly hop about scavenging tidbits from the floor. But sometimes the sparrows are bolder and savvy diners will remain alert during their meal or risk French fries disappearing from their plates.

    Beautiful images of these sweeties, Graham. Sunday afternoon, I no sooner opened my bedroom sliding door and a bird that looked suspiciously like this flew right into the room. I managed to grab it as it tangled in the blinds. He safely flew away!

      Thanks. I think house sparrows are one of those birds I’ve taken for granted, so it was fun to watch them for a while and take photos. I see quite a few around but don’t know if the numbers are changed from what they used to be.
