Artist's Description

The Cape Sparrow or Mossie (Passer melanurus) is a bird of the sparrow family Passeridae found in southern Africa. A medium-sized sparrow at 14–16 centimetres (5.5–6.3 in), it has distinctive plumage including large pale head stripes. Both sexes are mostly coloured grey, brown, and chestnut, and the male has some black and white markings. This little one enjoyed the seeds on the bird feeder in my garden!
Is twee mossies nie vir ’n sent te koop nie? En tog sal nie een van hulle op die grond val sonder die wil van julle Vader nie.~ Die Bybel: – Matheus 10:29
Wat sou ons ou wêreld dan gewees het sonder die getjirp van die mossies, die sierlike vlugte van die duiwe, die kwakende rinkinkers in die eendedam, die moddervet swaelnessies op ons agterstoep? Inligting
