Sparrow feeds chick on lotus in Beijing's Shichahai Park

A sparrow attracted the attention of many bird-lovers at Xihai Wetland Park in Beijing's Shichahai Park on July 24 when it lovingly fed its chick. The small and light chick waited to be fed on a lotus seedpod.

In recent years, the improved ecological environment at Xihai Wetland Park has attracted more bird species to settle and breed here.
