Sparrows Like Twisted Metal

Not the music, I assume, but who knows. I haven’t listened to metal in decades. It’s not on the play list out here.

This pile of twisted metal fencing is greatly favored by 15-20 sparrows. They congregate there regularly. I imagine you can barely see them in this photo which, I suppose, is the attraction for the birds. They can roost together and be very well protected visually and physically by whatever might want to prey upon them.

I have to cut up and dispose of this mess of wire and metal at some point. I sorta feel bad about doing so since these humble birds like the spot so much. They’re going to miss it when it’s gone

They have plenty of trees around here to go to, but nothing quite like this pile of twisted old fencing. Maybe I’ll plant some shrubs or something (like lilacs) in or near this spot after I haul away the twisted metal.
