May 6, 2020

Location: Aarhus, Denmark, private residence

I am a juvenile Eurasian Tree sparrow
When I hatched I was nekkid, with no natal down
Right now my colors are still pretty dull but,
Soon my head will be bright chestnut-brown.

Interesting fact: Although this photo was taken in Denmark, there is a small, localized (but expanding) population of these birds in the US. Details in the linked article. 

Guest Photographers: Anne and Sven
