Where do you get the bird names from, jchip8? Pull them out of a hat? :) First, these are not sparrows but Superb Fairywrens (Malurus cyaneus), also known as Superb Blue-wrens or colloquially as Blue Wrens. Second, the photo is not by Ferdinando Mondino but by Peter Pevy, and this was a National Geography photo. You can also find it at titled “Little Family. Superb Fairy Wren Chicks huddled together with their exhausted father”, albeit with a different foreground but the birds are exactly in the same pose, posted by ppv247.
