Bird of the Week Challenge: 1st August - home

Fantastic effort last week everyone! Such a great challenge, I hope you all enjoyed it

 

This week there is a lot of interpretation that can be made from the theme of 'home' so take what you will. It could be a bird in its favourite habitat, a photo in your yard, a tree hollow? Lots of options.

I'm not sure if I have ever seen an Australian Grebe out of the water (apart from when they build their nests).

The house sparrow. About as homey as you can get without living inside.
