I'm coming out...

Passer Domesticus

Yes, I must admit the truth to you all. I may lose a few readers because of this, but I can't hide it any longer.

After reading Jim McCormac's blog, "Ohio Birds and Biodiversity," I had the overwhelming need to fess up. I LIKE HOUSE SPARROWS! (What did you think I was going to say?) I know my British and European friends will understand and not look down on me. I can't help myself. I believe it is a genetic thing that you're born with. Some of us like House Sparrows, some of us go the other way...when we see one.

Thank you. I feel better now.

Who's the cute little baby?
Here's a special little friend, an Albino House Sparrow.
You must admit, he is a good looking bird!
Think of what they've done, introduced in the 1800's, they've spread throughout North America.
While in Britain they are on the decline.


Now European Starlings on the other hand...
