DiploBirds!? (2)

Time for a silly post. Was having coffee this afternoon at the Foggy Bottom cafe in the basement of the State Department's headquarters building, when what should pop up but a pedestrian little House Sparrow? Must have snuck in through the doors of the underground parking garage, looking for warmth and a winter's day snack.

I can definitely say this is the first bird I've seen inside the State Department building, although there were a pair of mallards that gained notoriety a few years ago for taking up residence right outside the department's main entrance...

Come on spring!
