House Sparrow Overload

Last night we finally got some much needed rain and relief from the 100+ degree weather.  The birds have been laying low and haven't seen much of them for a few days.  The few times that we would see them, they would be trying to find some shade and sitting with their mouths open to get relief from the heat.  This morning though, it's like a sparrow overload!!!  As I mentioned in a previous post, they are flocking by the hundreds and I mean that literally!  With this fresh rain, they are on a feeding frenzy in my yard.  This isn't even half of them in this picture.  The bushes in front of the house are just a flutter and there was another flock just out of sight behind the bushes.  (click on any pic to enlarge it)



It's hard to get a good close up of them because they are so flighty, but I did manage to capture this fella sitting in the bush, over looking his flock.


Here are a few more group pics ...





Until next time ...
