Mission Sparrow

Feb 12, 2020

Remember them? Our gentle little guests! Every morning they would wake us up with a familiar tune. Perched on ledges and lofts, they would hop right inside our houses and in the balconies the whole day, full of life, taking occasional tiny bites from our leftover supper. Nesting on low branches, in our homes and in sheds, they would put a smile on our faces us no matter what. Sparrows have been an integral part of our growing up years.
