The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a species of Passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It occurs naturally in most of Europe, the Mediterranean region, and much of Asia. It has also been intentionally or accidentally introduced to many parts of the world, making it the most widely distributed wild bird. It is strongly associated with human habitations, but it is not the only sparrow species found near houses. It is a small bird, with feathers mostly different shades of brown and grey.
The House Sparrow is a chunky bird, typically about 16 cm (6.0 in) long, ranging from 14 to 18 cm (5.5–7.0 in). It has a large rounded head, a short tail, and a stout bill. In weight, the House Sparrow generally ranges from 24 to 39.5 g (0.84–1.4 oz). Weight varies by sex, with females usually smaller than males. Younger birds are smaller, males are larger during the winter, and females larger during the breeding season.
