All of the photos above were taken in North Carolina. The two photos below were taken in New York last spring. This mother sparrow raised babies in the support post that holds up a traffic light on the corner of my street in the West Village (corner of Bleecher and Bank Streets) in Manhattan.  The photos speak for themselves; click to enlarge to see babies.
