At least I think it's a sparrow -- I'm not much of a birder! I was doing a fashion shoot yesterday afternoon, south of downtown, and saw this little sparrow hopping around near a drain pipe. The drain pipe turned out to be her home! For now, at least. Until her babies leave the nest. I hope the pipe is sufficiently plugged with crud and garbage to prevent a Sparrow family catastrophe on a rainy day! Yesterday was actually quite rainy, for a while anyway, and it looks like Mrs. Sparrow and her brood still have a cozy home, so that's a good sign.
Today is Memorial Day in the United States,, when we honor those who have lost their lives in service of our country. Enjoy the day off, but don't forget what it's all about! Happy Memorial Day!
