Common House Sparrow and Banana Leaf

bird, House Sparrow, banana leaf, image

This image could have been saved for a Wordless Wednesday but, here it is now.

It's been sitting in the pending files for a few years and, I haven't got a lot of words to say.

The better part of the day was used, in getting an article typed and submitted.

So, I'll just tell you the scientific name is Passer domesticus.

And, the birds can be seen, almost anywhere in the world, lots of them in flocks.

Camera: Pentax K5

Lens:  Sigma 50-500 at 310MM

Exposure:  f/9  1/250   ISO 100

Location:  Kin Town, Okinawa, Japan

Date and Time:  MAR 13  2013 3:51PM



Thanks to an alert reader on Facebook, we have a better Identification.
The bird pictured above is a Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus) not, a House Sparrow.
