House Sparrow (male) (2010-05-08 10-50-53a)

House Sparrow – Order Passeriformes : Family Passeridae : Passer domesticus

The photo was taken at North Pond in Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois.

The House Sparrow is considered to be an Old World Sparrow by ornithologists. They were introduced into the New York area by a professor of English literature who wanted to see all of the birds mention in Shakespeare’s plays living in the USA. He also imported and released the European Starling. Both of them have become pests.

I used a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 camera with an Olympus TCON-17 tele-extender., an equivalent of a 712 mm lens on a 35 mm camera. I used ACDSee Ultimate 2019 to adjust the lighting, increase the contrast, clarity and sharpness and adjust the levels.
