WBW/Crows & Sparrows



For today's WBW I'm posting pictures of birds we see on a daily basis. In sunshine or rain, they are ever present! The house crow/Corvus splendens is black with a grey neck and breast. The depth of colour in the plumage and the thickness of the bill varies from region to region. With an omnivorous diet they can survive on anything edible that they find near human habitation. The sparrows in this collage were taking a breather after pecking at the purslane that have sprung up all over my yard.

To see more of our feathered friends, visit the home of World Bird Wednesday.

Enjoy and Participate!

Our crows have disappeared, giving way to jet black ravens, and the sparrows went away 15 years ago:(

Lovely photos in your collage Kanak! I love Crows, like the rest of the Corvid family, they are such intelligent birds. Sadly, Sparrows are not such a common sight here now but it's good to know they are doing well there :-)

I love the nest..it's funny as we have the introduced sparrows here and they are too great in number and where they are supposed to be, they are in decline....Michelle
