    • I’m smiling as I type, because I had never thought about this before, but I absolutely agree with you Jo. It DOES look a bit like a tiny puffin. It’s always fun for this writer to hear what another writer is seeing. Thank you so much! 😀

    • I agree, they certainly look unique. But they scratch around the ground and grass looking for seeds and grains, just like the other sparrows. They are native residents of Indonesia, which is why they look different; and were introduced in Hawaii. Thanks so much! 😀

    • Glad you liked the Java Sparrow, Gordy. Your comment made me smile. Definitely a bit more exotic than any sparrow, though I sure would love to see the sparrows of Scotland. 😀

    • We found him under a nearby roof while looking out to sea off this vacation rental balcony. An obscure siting, I’m so glad it was captured, and I am glad you enjoyed it too, Lucy. Thanks for stopping by! 😀

    • Thanks Bertie. I feel the same way about this photo. The original photo had more of the bldg in it and the cuts made really sparked the photo up. Thanks so much my friend! 😀

    • Yes indeed, and they are quite prevalent in most of Hawaii. Not a native bird, which purist birders don’t like, but they live there now and they are oh so beautiful. Thanks Sue! 😀

  1. And what a darling friend dear Jet ! (S)he is loftily standing as if it it governs the world! Stunning observation post up there!Love its showy plumage,it’s absolutely unique 🙂 xxx

    • I really liked this photo like you, for the lofty position he is holding. He was with his mate working on a nest, so he was sporting a pride I think. So very glad you liked it dear Doda. 😀 😀
