Sparrows were plentiful here in Hawthorne (Brisbane) when we came here in
1960, but had become pretty scarce over the last decade or so.  But a few
days ago, I encountered a group of eight in the car-park of a local shopping

I thought, "How delightful!"  Such happy little birds.  I was about to post
a note to that effect, but then wondered, "Should I be happy over a
resurgence of an introduced species?" So I didn't.

But now, in view of the "Bring Back the Sparrows" postings, I confess up.
Like the Asian Geckoes that catch moths on our kitchen window, and reveal
their presence by barking, I can't help but like them.
