dc.description.abstractDecember has always proved to he one of the least exciting months of the year with regard to bird ringing. Ringers may relax and enjoy the festive season before the spring brings forth resurgent bird-life to the Maltese Islands. On 7th December 1975 we decided to go bat-netting sparrows at Hal Far during the late evening. The catch was a satisfactory one and thirty-seven sparrows were netted in all. One of the birds in particular showed quite different characteristic features than the rest of the birds. Its devious attempts to escape its "slippery" smooth feathers and its over all appearance and smaller size were those of a Tree Sparrow Passer montanus.en_GB
