Sparrow

Lamp above doorWe have a male sparrow that roosts in this ceramic lamp above the front door, it is easily disturbed at dusk, but usually flies back before dark. We changed the bulb to a low energy one so the sparrow’s feet don’t get too hot, although we rarely put that light on. Sparrows tend to live in family groups or colonies, I do wonder why he has chosen our lamp, however he looks cosy on the cold nights.

I love the way sparrows nest in strange places. We had two families living in the tiny space between our air-con unit and the wall last year, and one in the ‘elbow’ of the satellite dish arm. They are not back this year so far though.
