I have observed the rapid ‘flitting’ of wings when a baby sparrow is excited at feeding time but not at other times.
A female has been regularly checking out all 4 nest boxes. She sits on the top of them at times and ‘shouts’ continuously.
She ‘flits’ her wings like a baby bird. Is she asking for a male to ‘marry’ her?
She stands out from the others as she looks so unkempt. Rather a lot of grey fluffy feathers.
A male has been visiting the boxes briefly too.
Watched a robin feed another robin, ah true love.
Wonderful to have such beauty during these difficult times.
