El Comandante Gorrión – Spatz Guevara

oddball 15

I found this bird in the German city of Ulm. Sparrows are the mascots of the city and are in evidence all over town but this one – El Comandante gorrión – perfect with the Cuban cigar in his beak “takes the bird” (the English expression “to take the cake” translates as “to shoot down the bird” in German which I found quite appropriate in the circumstance).  I should add that all the other sparrows carry sticks to build a nest rather than cigars.
