Sparrow colony of Ormond Road

With the weather a bit too wild and wet for a walk along the beach, I went to find the local House Sparrow colony at the nearby shops. There are several palm trees that are flowering and the sparrows were enjoying a floral feast. A few fed while the rest waited for the rain to stop.
