Soggy Sparrow

This male sparrow stopped me in my tracks today until I raised my bins - a soggy House Sparrow rather than the Spanish Sparrow that it was impersonating... Ah well, next time maybe...

Ah yes, the power of suggestion!

What was odd about this sighting was that I was passing a hedge where a group of House Sparrows habitually hang out and it occurred to me that I never really check them for anything rarer. First bird that popped up was this one... Only had me excited for about half a second but it was still one of those quirky moments in birding...
