House Sparrows

You’d think the deathly cold temperatures of the last few weeks would have driven the birds to the feeder, but my yard has been almost entirely empty since the new year.  A milder spell this weekend finally brought back my usual flock of House Sparrows. Last month’s ice storm took down one of the branches on my lonely willow tree, and the birds seemed to appreciate the extra ground cover.
