House Sparrows

Common, but cute!

A bird in the hand is worth....three in the bush!

Nice camouflage!

The proverb "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." dates back to medieval days when people used falcons for hunting.  The bird in the hand was the falcon, which was worth far more than two birds in the bush (potential prey).  I had no idea.
