90 paintings in 90 days, Day 9, Java Sparrows

      Java Sparrows

       Introduced in the late 1800's the sparrows have thrived in Hawaii, although they are becoming rare in Indonesia where they originated. They are given large bowls of seed twice a day where I'm staying, lining up on the wires that cross the yard half an hour before like music notes. Their insistent chirping now a familiar song marking the time twice daily as they are never, ever late.  I can't even do that when I wear a watch.
