Sparrow have no spare love


A group of these house sparrows had taken over this palm tree in Port Arthur, TX -- making nest in the stubs of branches that had been trimmed near the foliage of the tree.   They were so packed in there, that when they flew back to the tree, they often entered the wrong cubbyhole -- which elicited a strong rebuke from the occupant.

Trouble was that a group of grackles were hanging out in the tree next door  -- just the normal comings and goings of both groups make for a raucous level of activity.
