Baby Birds Nesting on My Front Door

A small thing; a miracle.

Beautiful pictures.
What are they Patrick? North American Sparrows?

Just a House Sparrow or English sparrow -- very common bird here and over there. Passer domesticus. I have written a bit about their history here >>

Truthfully, I call all the birds in the hedeg "LBJs" -- litttle brown jobs. The females are particularly hard to tell apart, and in the world of finches there's always a bit of hybridization going on. But these were house sparrows of the most common sort.
