SHE

Which of these two sparrows is nimbler?


SHE - he is still watching while she is already in full action.

Sparrows are always so active (well, I guess all birds are), and fun to watch. But you were lucky to be able to watch a couple in action. Notice how the female moves to the head of the line, even in the avian world? :)

He will say he's just being polite. You know, ladies first and all.

Lovely bird set and texts are very comfortable.
She is always nimbler than he, everybody knows that.. or what...

She is taking advantage of free food while he does not believe there is ever "free lunch" so he is watching for the catch. Like this series a great deal. Fine portraits of humble sparrows.
