Description

6 April 2015: Observed a pair of House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) land on a Crape Myrtle (lagerstroemia crape myrtle) in Denton, Texas, and carry on an audibly busy conversation. Of the two the female showed some interest to see who or what had taken notice of their boisterous approach. Because of her curiosity we were able to get a few quick digital clicks. With this being early spring, the leaves of the crape myrtle had not yet set in making it easier to see birds plainly through the branches. We know spring and summer's seemingly endless foliage will provide them with ubiquitous camouflage. They can then try presumably to hide in plain sight as they go about raising the next generation.
