    • Hello Matti-san,
      Thank you for loving my photo! I am twice happy you liked these sparrows. They are “common birds” so most people do not give them much attention.
      I feel they have a subtle, refined beauty and they are real survivors! Thank you for spending time with these 2 sparrows 🙂

  1. Lovely capture of parent and immature Takami. It would be interesting to know what thoughts are in the minds of birds when they rest like this. What aspirations and hopes they may have for their future, especially the little one. The reason many never accomplish much is they are afraid to dream much and only dream little dreams. As a famous saying says the saddest loss is not from failing to attempt but the fear of failure which prevents one from ever attempting.

    • Thank you Ash!
      I too, can’t help but wonder what goes through their minds sometimes. I do like to believe they have their own hopes and “excitement” for what’s ahead…

      I appreciate that you shared the wise saying. You’re right, it is important to dream “big” dreams, and to allow ourselves to believe we are worth it.

    • Thank you Tanja❤️ I am so happy you liked these sparrows. As they are “common” birds, they are often overlooked. But, I feel they are so beautiful and never tire of looking at them.

      The juvenile bird had a strong sense of curiosity, often approaching something that caught his/her attention. Mama bird was always very near by 😉

    • Hello Inese! Yes, you are correct, they are Eurasian tree sparrows! They are among the most common birds here, but I never tire of seeing them. These two were Mama bird and her juvenile “baby.” The young one was very curious, so Mama was nearby, keeping him/her out of trouble 😀

    • Thank you Carol!
      I’m glad you noticed their good companionship 🙂 The sparrows in my neighborhood are usually quite wary of humans, but the young sparrow still had a sense of curiosity and didn’t hesitate to come close. Naturally, Mama Bird was very vigilant about protecting her baby 🙂
