Johan lovely photos showing the colours so well, its amazing how they can look almost black in an unfavorable light.

Smith'sZoo you should ask a resident of Howick - they refer to them as 'Howick sparrows' down there as they are so common.

Love the Hadeda, last year we had mom and dad and baby! Would you say they are good for the garden?
