SHUT UP!! Male Sparrow clutches her beak by claw

This incredible picture shows how a lovers tiff between two sparrows ended abruptly when the male bird rudely took matters into his own claws and clamped his female friend's beak shut.

Postman Schmidli, 55, from Switzerland said he studied the sparrows in his garden for a month before he began taking pictures. Sparrows mainly have little squabbles over food.
'But in this one shot it really looked like the darker male had just had enough of a nearby female's cheeping and decided to try and quieten the din down.'
