World Sparrow Day
With the male in the species, resembling nothing short of a masked vigilante, this beautiful ave gave us quite a scare when it had seemingly disappeared from the cities. I personally missed it a lot, till one day, they did come back. A whole brood of them mind you, who took charge of a tree outside my house and now consider it their duty to wake me up every morning by knocking lovingly on my window. However, I rather be awake listening to them cheep, knowing everything is fine, rather than battle sleeplessness wondering why the outside had become so eerily quiet and had been instead taken over entirely by the sounds of building machinery. Welcome back my darling sparrow, may you never disappear and may your tribe increase! Happy World Sparrow day everyone!
