Mark, if your talking about the first picture, it's got a black oil seed in it's beak :).

Excellent close-ups Glen. I noticed the first little guy has a severe under-bite.

Love the yellow stripe on his head.Without it he would be just another brown sparrow.

Thank you Tom! I was quite surprised that they came in so close to the bench I was sitting on, maybe six feet away. Pays to be patient and still :).
