Hungry boys
They were so engrossed in feeding, they didn't really turn round propery to give me a good view of them. But I still find their back plumage rather attractive with the chestnut and black.

Sparrows do indeed have a lovely feather patterning but seldom spoken about. I guess because they are so common. A beautiful image showing their lovely feathering D.

Is it me, or are there 'seasons' for seeing these (and your robins)? I don't seem to see them coming in that often, then may get a few people posting them... then it goes quiet again LOL

An excellent picture this one KC - many thanks lassie.
For as long as I have lived, Robins have always been known as a sign of Spring. Not so with the RW Blackbird though.

They really are attractive little birds regardless which side of them you see. They seem to be quite appreciative of the food! TFS D!
