Well since they are 'sparrows' that God watches over just like all the rest I realized it was time to become tolerant of them and take time to observe them.
First I discovered they have their own beauty
Very pretty breast feathers
Bold contrasting beaks
and a cuteness when all puffed up against the cold.
They were willing to share perching space.
and a spot at the feeder
And everyone else was willing to stick around
and feast on left overs.
Edit to add: In looking at them again I have given them a nickname - The Polka Dots
(sounds like a singing group from the 50's)
