Sing your heart out

It is that time of year again when the air is filled with birdsong as territories are defended and there are potential mates to impress.

Today a male house sparrow was making his presence felt, singing loudly from these railings with his wings lowered and quivering from the effort.

The song of the house sparrow is not the most elaborate of sounds, instead the house sparrow makes do with a simple repetitive chirrup of few notes. He is certainly no nightingale or blackbird but it works for him.

I must say I am really rather pleased with this shot…
