Sticky food on the feeders...............................................................................

At last some warm sunshine in the garden.
The warm weather made the fat balls I put out for the birds a bit soft.

Not a problem for my garden House Sparrows.

They have been gorging themselves all day.


This little youngster has mastered the splits to balance on a perch.

The juveniles were having fun... and glad the rain has passed for a while.

You are lucky getting good numbers of House Sparrows visiting your garden Andrew, I can`t remember the last time we had one in ours! A sign of the times I suppose.

Great to see Andrew.
I get a few in the garden, and the fat balls seem to be the favourite food.

Warm sunshine Andrew, what's that then?

Great shots of your House Sparrows having a feed. Those around here seem to have had a good breeding season as there are lots of newly fledged youngsters about at the moment (great to see).

Unfortunately, for my wallet that is, they seem to have taken a liking for the sunflower hearts over the fatballs!...[;o)

I love to see the birds enjoying themselves at the feeders! It's really fun when they bring the babies.

Great shots of the House Sparrows Andrew! I especially liked the juvies. It sure looks like you could go broke putting out those suet balls the way they devour them!
