House Sparrow

While watching the ducks on the Columbia River from Hayden Island, I came across a small flock of House Sparrows in some shrubs. I've never shot a House Sparrow yet even though they are very common. I guess it's because they typically hang out in cities around here and I usually bird in more rural areas.
Anyway, they were quite close so I took the opportunity to snap a few pictures. The male's face and breast where not as black as they would be during the breeding months. They're really rather pretty birds, but get overlooked because of they are so common and are considered somewhat of a pest.
