Look. A House Sparrow.  I'm not sure if I've ever photographed a HOSP before.  Why would one? This one looks fluffy, almost adorable. (But don't you believe it.)  And he's perched on a Himalayan blackberry.  How apropos.

Once in Toronto I came across a House Sparrow wrestling with a cicada on the sidewalk.  I was cheering for the cicada, but eventually the sparrow bashed it into pieces and flew away with what was left.  Tough little things.

And they're all named "Bumpus."
