“I Am Training To Be A Spy”

American Tree Sparrow

F/6.3, 1/640, ISO 5600.

American Tree Sparrow

Day 287 / 365

Older couple were walking through the park when a sparrow flew overhead. The bird poop landed right on old man’s head.
Seeing the mess, old woman said, “I wish we had some toilet tissue.”
The Old man replied, “What good would it do. He’s probably a half a mile away by now.”

Interesting Fact: American Tree Sparrows need to take in about 30 percent of their body weight in food and a similar percentage in water each day. A full day’s fasting is usually a death sentence. Their body temperature drops and they lose nearly a fifth of their weight in that short time.  ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/American_Tree_Sparrow/lifehistory )



  1. Very sweet. Such a pretty photo, even though that bird lacks the vibrant colours of so many birds…especially in Australia. Yet, it has a sweetness about it! xx Rowena

    • Thank you very much. I hope one day I will make my way to Australia to capture all the amazing wildlife. Thank you again for stopping by and your amazing feedback. 🙂

  2. Great shot! Glad you enjoyed my travel spiel, I’m better with my words than my lens haha.
