Little Brown Birds.

Or sometimes LBJs – Little Brown Jobs.

I’ve heard both referring to all of those small, tough to identify brown sparrows, finches and warblers that flit around in the trees.

I’m pretty sure these are house sparrows, and that means that they’re not really sparrows – they’re finches.

The city is full of house sparrows, although this time of year there are plenty of warblers and other LBBs too.

  1. I like the photo. You should check out Texas Tweeties and see if you can find the birds that match yours. He has some great photos. 🙂
