Beautiful. The sparrows here are really fearless. They come in close proximity to humans.

we have house sparrows here in sweden too. they often live in the middle of cities and come to bird feeders.

I think you folks also have a very similar species - Eurasian Tree sparrow - which are probably more common than the house sparrows there?

These sparrows look healthier than their Indian counterparts! Standard of Living in US must truly be very good!

BTW, nice pics!

Re: Not just sparrows
I don't have a picture of those squirrels yet, but they sure are massive compared to our common squirrels, but they are kinda smaller than our Malabar Giant Squirrels which we can see in the western ghats area.

Re: Not just sparrows
Malabar Giant Squirrels are very appropriately named as giant!

Re: Not just sparrows
They're not only massive, but don't scare as easily either.
Here's a picture -

Re: Not just sparrows
But they aren't as big or beautiful as our Indian giants - the endemic Malabar Giant Squirrel :)
