Bird Photography - Sparrows
Photographs taken this year during COVID-19 lock down in my garden.
I set up several perches within my garden with several feeding stations to attract the birds in. It look quite a while for the birds to get used to my presence as I didn't use a hide. After a few weeks the birds got used to me being around and lost their fear and started coming into the garden. The sparrows seemed to take the longest to get used to my presence, unlike the Dunnocks who where first into the garden to feed.

With the COVID-19 Lockdown I decided to set myself a challenge of photographing from my garden rather than usually going out to do my usual photography.

The Goldfinches were going bananas today, turned out it was fledging day, so had to keep the cats inside as little Goldfinch chicks were in the garden with the parents trying to get them to fly. One even flew into my office by mistake.
It was a good excuse to get some close up pictures, here are just a few of the many I took.
