Sparrows
Feeding
created by

A familiar sight in urban and suburban settings throughout much of the United States and neighboring parts of Canada and Mexico, the House Sparrow (Passer domesticus), formerly known as English Sparrow, thrives and raises their families. Imported and established from Europe more than 100 years ago, they prefer city streets, old buildings, parks, shopping malls, freeway overpasses, and true to their name, around human habitations. They tend to be year-round residents where they occur and sustain themselves by eating weeds seeds and food crumbs in addition to planted landscaping, fruit trees,
seed feeders, and even pet food from their dishes. Male House Sparrows are rather striking in appearance with a brown and gray crown and broad black bib surrounding pale colored cheeks. Females are more somber in appearance, resembling their young, shown here begging for food---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Claude G.
