At 2 years old, Sparky the sparrow isn’t as big as he should be, but he is very much alive.
Sparky was found, fighting for his life, on a concrete walkway by a stranger. The newly hatched baby, who had taken an 8-foot fall from his nest, was taken in by the man and nursed back to health.
His favorite pastime is bath time. Because he is so small, a plate makes the perfect bird bath.
His bathing routine? First, he circles around the plate a few times, gathers up some courage and puts one foot into the water. Next, he makes a little splash with his beak. Finally, he is ready to take the plunge, splashing and flapping happily around in his special tub.
