Hello Russia!

Yesterday on June 19, more people from Russia viewed my blog then did people from the USA. 

To celebrate this interesting statistic I will commemorate this post to the backyard birds we share with Russia. 

Today's shared backyard bird is the ever familiar house sparrow. 

Two juveniles left and center with male house sparrow to the right.

One interesting thing that I have observed is that only adult house sparrows know/have the ability to eat sunflower seeds. The juveniles eat the small seeds only. It could be something that is learned throughout their life, or could deal with the changes in their beaks as they mature. What do you think?
