You never know who is going to drop by the media office at the Stock Show. Among the unexpected visitors Saturday was a sparrow, who fluttered around the room before settling under a desk.
With all the doors constantly swinging open, and all the bird-enticing crumbs and bits of livestock feed in every nook and cranny of the Stock Show grounds, indoor avian visits are not an uncommon thing.
In fact, the sparrow we had in the media office may have been part of the pair I saw in the main exhibits hall before it opened Friday, which was happily using a water fountain as a birdbath. — Punch Shaw
