Birds of a Feather (Skywatch Friday)



As the saying goes: "Birds of a feather flock together," and that sure was true of these little birds.
Against a cloudy-bright sky, they were enjoying the scarlet-leafed and berry-laden shrubs next to the Old Depot Museum this week. While I only see two in the photo, many more flew away just before the picture was snapped.


Anybody know what kind of birds these are? They were smaller than they appear here.

Happy Skywatching!

Beautiful capture... Love the scarlet leaves... don't have a clue what kind of birds they are, but they are precious perched there in that pretty tree.

I really love this shot... Very original...

They're sitting in crape myrtles I think and they look like sparrows to me but I'm no expert on either front. I like this, I guess birds of a feather...

I'm not much on the names of birds or plants but I love those pretty red leaves.

RR: What a wonderful capture of a neat sky with the trees and birds.

Sometimes they think they are in hiding when we see right through what they think they are hiding behind. You did good.

Sparrows?

Beautiful photo.

I think they are sparrows. I love the way the foreground is out of focus, focusing the eye on the birds.

Wonderful picture. The color is so inviting. The birds do look like a type of sparrow but couldn't tell you for sure.

you did a great job on this. :)

Rose said...

What I want to know is what kind of bush is that? Love those leaves.

Regarding the birds, I think they are house sparrows but not sure. Try googling that term followed by clicking on images and see if you think I am right.
