I'm beginning to realise just how territorial House Sparrows are. We get a lot of House Sparrows in our back garden - they are our most common bird, by far. We also get a few in the front garden, just a few metres away. I am amazed, however, that this one very distinctive looking bird is frequently seen in our front garden, but never in our back garden, particularly as we have several feeders in the back garden, but none in the front.
