Now thats where knowing people like you comes in real good Kenny. I'd have called this a sparrow!

Shows how much we have to learn huh?

We grew up callin' this a hedge sparrow. Its only the booklearnin that taught me good!

I read this one somewhere, you might like!

Youth - the age when we know everything.

Old age - the realization that we actually know very little.

Best regards

He's a beauty, whatever he's called, Kenny, and an excellent capture! I never heard of a Dunnock when I lived in Britain, so I have to check Wiki to know why it is so named.

The common name is a Hedge Sparrow but it is not really related to a sparrow. It is closer to a robin.

Hi Kenny

Love this shot of the Dunnock, and I see that it has a tag on.

Came across this site that gives you a sample of its song

All the best Peter

Hi Peter

Thanks for the link, I already use this site for finding the latin names.

Several of my bird photos show ringed birds. This is because the British Trust for Ornithology use our land for bird study.

I've never seen this one before, what family does he belong to? In Michigan, we have many birds that only breed in our region. Some of the families, though, are the same.

Wonderful shot, Kenny!

Cheers from Michigan,
