On House Sparrows

Posted Monday 7th June 2010 at 01:36 by Francis Duggan
House sparrows under house eaves, shed rafters or in tree cavities build their straggly nests of hay
That they line with small feathers and where they do lay
Up to eight tiny pea sized pale eggs that are blotched lightish brown
Birds at home in the countryside, village city or town
In their vast range to people house sparrows are very well known
And though not beautiful to look at they do have a charm of their own
The lovable brown to gray small birds who do not have a song
The cheeky chirpers of your backyard who chirp all day long
Loved by some and looked upon by some as a pest
In Spring all day long their young chirp for food in the nest
By sight or by sound them you cannot mistake
They chirp all day long to nightfall from daybreak
They must like and trust us humans since to us they like to live near
Though from us it does seem they should have most for to fear.
