Sparrows foraging in the garden

December 27, 2019

 

During a break between light rain showers, a group of sparrows and a California towhee descended on the front yard.

 

I observed the activity through a window, and also took these photos through the window because I didn't want to disturb the birds by any kind of movement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The birds were very busy, seemingly very excited and moving with quick hops and taking short flights, on a quest for food.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I still can't figure out what they were eating, insects or plant matter.

They were certainly finding something to eat in the ground, on the Berzerkley salvia shrub, and around the lambs ears.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a white crowned and a gold crowned sparrow engrossed in their feeding frenzy.
