In Hungary when I was born and spent 39 years, there is a saying that goes like; "The House Sparrow is a bird too". 
It means it deserves to be recognized even it is at the end of the line. (Bird was a slang word for people among other countless other slang words)
Thanks for looking.

A great saying from your homeland, and a beautifully composed image of the sparrow. The stone perch and background work very well together. Excellent image, Karl.

Nice image Karl. Male house sparrows are in fact very attractive birds and overlooked by most photographers (including me). I did try for some flight shots near my feeder last year and some turned out pretty decent. Not a big demand for them however.

I love to see and hear the sparrows chirping around the house, Karl. A lovely image!
