My Flora and Fauna Friday subject this week is the Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus). The species is found across most of temperate Europe and Asia.
This individual was photographed emerging from a nest cavity in an apple tree at Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England. There is mistletoe growing on the apple tree above the entrance to the nest.
This is also a contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Trees photo challenge.
