"...and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father"

This is not a sparrow, but it has most definitely 'fallen on the ground', to quote from the Book of Matthew. 

I don't know what kind of bird it is, but I am going to guess it is a type of swallow...? I saw it today lying on a street in Astoria. It may have come to grief by hitting a car window, reflecting today's bright, sunny sky. 

Concluding with some more verses from Matthew, chapter 10:
30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
