Sweet sparrow family

I’ve enjoyed watching this little family of house sparrows fluttering around the backyard this week.  Right now, the baby birds are sticking pretty close to the mother  even though they are big enough to pick up the sunflower seeds themselves.  You can tell the babies from the mother by the yellow lines around their mouth.
