Little boy
In grey armacost
The courts prowling -
Crumbs collects,
In the fields of sleep -
Hemp steals...
Mystery

And to discover where Sparrow and where vorobie, not just such difficulties we've had with hedgehogs, pigeons and crows). Another thing, East adherents of a person living in the city,the house sparrows.

After my bath it is necessary to comb. And then it has its own rules. Sparrows and related birds to clean up the heads, lower wing and stick on top of his leg. Pigeons and chickens don't do that. They are itchy, as they say ornithologists, from under the wing... Themselves sparrows teasing feathers with pleasure, and any alien touch is perceived as unpleasant. So if you will get a Sparrow, not iron...
