A male English Sparrow looks so proud perched on a branch with some nesting material. After taking this picture, I watched him move to the feeder where he dropped the material in an attempt to get some seed. So much for multi- tasking! I don’t think his lady was too impressed, as I watched her scold him after dropping the nesting material. lol
