One of these is not a sparrow

Three House sparrows and a praying mantis on a rail

The praying mantis had been on the rail for some time when the sparrows arrived. I feared for its chances, but it remained very still and the sparrows never seemed to notice it, even though they hung around for a while.

          Don’t know how good they are flying, but I think they were introduced to many places by people wanting to see birds they knew and liked.
