A proving conducted in October 2005 at the Devon-based School of Homeopathy reveals the feisty nature of the common house sparrow
The sparrow is the second bird to have been proven at the school. While Falcon represents a pinnacle – the most respected, the swiftest predator – sparrow is at the bottom of the pile and feels disre-spected. small and sprightly, this little bird is often overlooked, its more brightly-colored and flamboyant brothers drawing all the attention, and is actively culled as a pest in countries where it has been intro-duced. “Fighting for its place in the sun” proves to be a major theme; the little bird being a symbol of resist-ance against larger enemies.
