Lovely sharp shot Tcook.Like Happy, our sparrows tend to nest under roof eaves around here. I think theyre a very neglected bird as far as photography goes....probably because theyre so common in a lot of places.

They may be neglected by some, but I take lots of pictures of them. Mostly killing time waiting for something else, but what the heck.

Me too Happy, good way of passing the time if nothing else is about to photograph. That looks like a scene from my own back garden, even got the same type of seed feeders hung up as in your shot.Nice sharp shot by the way...

The feeder in Happy's nice shot of sparrows is also like the ones I use from the local Wal-Mart. I have tried many other different, more expensive feeders, and yet find that the birds prefer these type.

A nice shot.

I gave up on seed feeders. Most of the seeds fall to the ground and strange things grow from them. I like suet feeders, no waste. You get more birds for your buck/ camera!

Between the squirrels and the starlings, a block of suet at my house lasts little more then a day. The woodpeckers get a wee bit of it before it is gone.

That is the same kind of feeder I use but as Bill said I have been having problems lately and had to take it down for a while. The main problem is the excess seed was attracting rats and I can't stand that so I have been providing a steady diet of Di-con for them.
Maybe I should try a suit feeder, what kind do you use Bill? Will the sparrows eat that?

Tcook

I use the suet that is on sale. Flavor is not important. I make sure to hang feeders where squirrles can not jump on to them. When they eat the suet it come apart and falls to the ground. There is no way to keep sparrows away. One suet cake last over a week by me. If you look on line there are recipes for home made suet too.

Really nice capture and a beautiful composition. The bird is framed perfectly. That bark is very reflective making for a tough shot.
ditto!!!
