American mob-sparrow declares war on Norway

“This one comes out once in a while and eat some oatmeal and sunflower seeds, then it chases away the nearby sparrows and greenfinchs – just like a typical American: A little ostentatious with pointy elbows” says birdwatcher Grønningssæter to the newspaper. He also tells us that people all over the country hurries to get a peek at the mob-sparrow from America.

A white-crowned sparrow from the northern parts of America had some navigational problems and ended up here instead of the southern parts of America, it could be low pressure combined with bad weather who pushed him off course.

To be honest I thought bird-watchers were calm and openminded people, but I’ve kind of changed my mind.
