Sparrow village

Yesterday evening I went for a walk down Brunswick st. and stopped in at the Brunswick st. Bookstore for a browse before getting pizza and beer for dinner. When I got home Phil asked if I had seen any good books and I told him about the 'Book of birds of Melbourne' and how I wished I had bought it. "Birds of Melbourne?!" he scoffed, "What? You want a book about pigeons and sea gulls and those bloody yellow legged Minah things?" and I added meekly, "and sparrows....."
