Though I see quite a few Sparrows in Baildon I have never seen one in my garden. The hedges along Cliffe Avenue and Thompson Lane often have Sparrows around them. However today we had a Sparrow on our feeders in the garden. What was great though was that it was a Tree Sparrow. I have only seen Tree Sparrows at Fairburn Inns.
What I struggled with though is what the companion is. Male and female Tree Sparrows look the same but its companion is quite definitely different. However, after reviewing the evidence, and taking note that Indie Birder told me, it is a female House Sparrow.
So it was quite a surprising day.
