His Eye is on the Sparrow

Our final day in Australia, was the first day of winter (!) and overnight there had been an incredible thunderstorm. Although the ground was wet, I was lucky, and so relieved that the rain had stopped.

Melbourne is such a beautiful city and actually really walkable. I walked from one side all the way to the other in my final few hours, and was lucky to catch these birds hopping around a tray left on a table outside McDonalds.

  1. aww loved seeing the bird photos. i remember when i visited and was so surpassedwith silly things like how different the MacDonalds was! loved how open plan they were with the birds popping in and out 🙂

  2. Glad you liked the pictures, thanks for the comment. I was really happy I managed to get a few nice shots before they hopped away and the tray got cleared.

  3. That is amazing. Japanese sparrows never behave like that as you may know although I must say they have become more accepting of human beings than before and they behave more like pigeons than sparrows.

    • Yes I was shocked at how the shutter sounds didn’t even cause them to jump or flinch. They were perfectly happy around people, which is, as you say, amazing.
