It blows my mind and fills my heart with delight to watch sparrows from my window flying in and out of the brambles and the bushes of holly. They travel in groups, and the wierdest thing is how synchronised they are, darting off insanely quickly and landing nervously on very parallel branches. The most common wild bird in Northern Europe, what observing the sparrow might indicate that in some instances collaborations might work. Yes, I mean with other humans.
