Sitting right at the top of a tangle of clematis covering a tall tree stump, this chap was taking a short break from singing to mark his territory. He was probably also hoping to attract a female.
Picture taken from indoors, end of March 2010.
Male House Sparrows have a grey cap, brown below the grey, and grey/buff/white cheeks.
Male Tree Sparrows have a all-brown cap (no grey) and a dark patch marking within the lighter cheek area of the head.
