  1. The sparrows are good – they give a very Eastern feel too I think.

  2. The sound of chimes heals? Chimes and sparrows’ sound…I could hear it MMT!

    The photo is very nice too!

  3. Recently I had done a post on sparrows and goodness it is so apt, their chirps and the tinkling bells!! You have connected it so well!

  4. I love the sound of chimes and yes! can image thousands of sparrows singing.

  5. Another image that makes me feel happy — that fleeting happy I know is real, simply because it flies by so fast.

  6. Many say sparrows are a pest…I love to hear them…beautiful words

  7. thank you for your link!

  8. We lament the loss of the hedge sparrow to our fields nearby, but we do have the tinkling of wind chimes! Lovely pic.

  10. Wow, not sure I could handle that many birds, but depending on the chime, it definitely can soothe the soul.
