It’s OK the people have left but the Sparrow is taking his chances! Who can blame someone who is very hungry? I can not explain to cafe owners that “These Rats with Wings” are the main attraction of their cafes.

I understand the cafe owners though, some customers don’t like to have animals around. It’s sad, because as you said, they do what they can to find food. 1 Log in to Reply Thanks Ellie, they appreciate food! However, there was an AD on TV that had a trainee chef fail his cake because he didn’t add NZ butter. He said to the older chef,”I will give it to the birds” and was answered by, “Not if you want the birds to fly!” 1 Log in to Reply Hehehehheeh, I love the coffee cup photo and this capture with the sparrow is awesome and very cute…..!!! 🙂 1 Log in to Reply Thanks so much Tasartcraft, glad you like the cheeky sparrow 1 Log in to Reply Yes I like it very much and the whole capture I love, maybe because I love coffeeshops, hehehe…! 😉 1 Log in to Reply I love coffee shops too………….. 1 Log in to Reply Hehehe, that is great to know, you actually surprised me with this photo much! 🙂 They are very annoying and cheeky. Often I come to visit. I agree that they are the main attraction of cafes. You managed to laugh at me with the definition of them – “These rats with wings.” If you allow me to use it in some of my posts. 1 Log in to Reply That’s OK Elenka, I tell those “Rats on wings” that they have to earn their meal by posing for the camera! I don’t mind if you use the term. Log in to Reply Never heard about the sparrows as “these rats with wings”, in my country this phrase usually refers to pigeons. And your shot with this hungry bird is very funny!!! 1 Log in to Reply Thanks Anastasia, I cant help feel sorry for any hungry bird or animal. 1 Log in to Reply I love the line rats with wings. The picture is hilarious! you are a bird master! 1 Log in to Reply Thanks, a cafe owner said that as he did not want people to feed the birds. Thanks Doc 1 Log in to Reply I suspect the cafe owner is quite smart, not feeding the birds in theory would reduce the number of birds. 1 Log in to Reply The sparrows are obviously the same all over the world …. they put in sugar at the coffee shop in the cafe because the sparrows take them all away …. I could not believe when I saw him grabbing a sugar bag and flew away … really they are real thieves hahaha 1 Log in to Reply The Sparrow is a smart bird. Thanks Lado Log in to Reply You are also fast to capture this act! Yeah, we cannot blame them because they are hungry. 1 Log in to Reply Certainly you are right, and a cafe is a larder for a Sparrow. Thanks Sharon Log in to Reply Big lough , does rats with wings also exist ? 1 Log in to Reply According to that cafe owner, the Sparrows are them. Log in to Reply Is this action outdoor or indoor? 1 Log in to Reply It is outdoor but with an awning over it. Thanks Albert 1 Log in to Reply I see… that’s why the bird can freely visit and join the guest table. 1 Log in to Reply they may be an attraction to you but a nuisance to others. there may be health code violations 1 Log in to Reply Yes, that is also true. Thanks Alex. Sparrows are particularly messy with no housekeeping skills. 1 Log in to Reply I don’t know why the cafe owners don’t like them, but I expect they have reasons… 1 Log in to Reply It reminds me of when sparrows waited for us to throw French fries while we were eating at McDonalds. They’re like pigeons. 😄 1 Log in to Reply This is also true but Pigeons throw the food around more than Sparrows. They are messy too 1 Log in to Reply Lol… rats with wings… well, they’re a huge pest (more of pigeons and mynah) when it comes to open-air cafes … I’ve on going after my food even when I was holding it! :/ 1 Log in to Reply Yes sometimes they are a pest. You certainly are right, pays to watch over it Log in to Reply I experienced something similar a few days ago in a cafe. The sparrow needed sugar. He took a bag of sugar from the table and flew away 😊 1 Log in to Reply That is one smart Sparrow, he didn’t stay to create a mess. Thanks Vidocka Log in to Reply ooh waoo nice post cheeky cheeky sparrow! 1 Log in to Reply One has to have cheek to survive sometimes. Thanks Hamza Log in to Reply And the same thing with us is the same thing. Eating with us. It seems they are all the same when hunger is concerned. To me, this is nice and I never take them from my desk while I’m in a bakery and eat cakes. 1 Log in to Reply I feel the same way as you do Robin, I cant help but like them and they make it more interesting even if they do make some people mad. Log in to Reply You made me smile when I read “These Rats with Wings”. 1 Log in to Reply Thanks Carol, Rats with wings are often having to be smarter than people and in my opinion, if you cant beat them join them and enjoy the show. The customers should just be provided with a cloth to clean up after these Pi rats. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
