Little Sparrows

Little sparrow, Porto Mediceo, LivornoOn a slightly windy day at the “Porto Mediceo” little sparrows tend to come close to you, looking for cover or for food. Fishermen are usually well provided with worms and sometimes they even throw some to the birds.Little sparrow, Porto Mediceo, LivornoI usually don't carry worms and I have always been quite happy with that, until this morning... (Photos taken on April 26)

They look like they are on the prowl for a scrap or two.

Poor little fellow! The battle for subsistence is tough!

So now you will walk around with worms? And I will spend the day humming the "who will feed a little sparrow..." song (as sung by Simon and Garfunkel...)

These little brown sparrows appear to be everywhere. We have lots of them in our back yard at home in Manila. We feed them breadcrumbs. Never even thought they'd like worms. And no, I don't typically worms around either... :-D
