Eurasian Tree-sparrows frolicking

Eurasian Tree-sparrow (Passer montanus) or in Malay  'Ciak Urasia' perching on the 'Ong Lumok' branch

Eurasian Tree-sparrow
 The phenomena of the tree-sparrows just happened some few months ago.  One day I noticed one bird came to the park.  A couple of weeks later I saw two dropped by.  Towards the end of 2014 there were a about a dozen of them.  By early this year their numbers seemed to grow more than 20 fold.  I have come to accept that fact that they are now a permanent feature of the park, and growing.  Today I saw a dozen or so of them frolicking in shallow waters at Zone F.  They were seen splashing the waters and seemed to be happy having their morning bath.
