  2. I love how I had to think about this picture a little. I've never seen a "burning bush" but sparrows here are as common as...well, sparrows! Our sparrows like to gather in our shrubs, too.

  3. Stunning! I've never heard of a "burning bush" either, but I need to look into whether or not they would grow here. It's beautiful.

  5. What a lovely photo. I was watching sparrows in my garden today, but by the time I got my camera they had disappeared. I have never seen a burning bush.

  13. Oh, so pretty! I love how they are all aligned and tuned into something going on in the vicinity! Goldfinches, yes?

    1. Sparrows I think Susan. It was unusual to see them all on that bush.

  14. Love the photo. At home (in Sacramento), on our back patio, the sparros like to gather in a saucer we've filled with water and take baths. They are a real kick to watch! Meanwhile, thanks for stopping by my Fourth Wish blog and commenting.
