麻雀 tree sparrow

除了在「我最喜歡的香港雀鳥選舉」中,榮登榜首,享受過幾刹那光輝外,香港的麻雀似乎沒有受到很大的注目。 也許這是好事,讓牠們可天生天養。

香港的品種叫樹麻雀,同屬的有二十多種。

麻雀是雜食性鳥類。繁殖期以昆蟲育雛,秋、冬季,吃雜草種子,所以牠們除了是最不怕人的良伴,更替我們滅害蟲除莠。

sparrows are everywhere in this town. the species here is called tree sparrow or eurasian tree sparrow. it belongs to the genus of passer. there are more than 20 species under the genus. i would think our sparrow is of a cute type. the black patches under its chin and at both side of the cheek are adorable and distinguishable.

我很愛留意牠們,因為牠們就在周圍:而牠們有可愛的臉蛋,下巴和兩頰的黑斑,有水墨點睛的效果;牠們動靜逗人,扭動頭顱,像向兩邊傾聽;偶爾牠們大駕降臨,于我客廳的窗臺稍作駐腳鵲叫幾聲。最欣賞牠們在鬧市的人造山坡,一隻兩只的,停留在引水管口。那是家常風光但趣致活潑。i enjoy a lot of their company and think that they are being under-rated. perhaps that is good, i can own the pleasure more privately. have you paid attention to the pattern and colours? how beautiful the shades of brown, black and white blend and divided in the plumage.
