Species: P. domesticus
The range of the House Sparrow, with its native range in dark green and its introduced range in light green.
The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a member of the Old World sparrow family Passeridae, considered by some to be a relative of the Weaver Finch Family. It occurs naturally in most of Europe and much of Asia. It has also followed humans all over the world and has been intentionally or accidentally introduced to most of the Americas, sub-Saharan Africa, New Zealand and Australia as well as urban areas in other parts of the world. It is now the most widely distributed wild bird on the planet. In the United States it is also colloquially known as the English Sparrow to distinguish it from native species.
Wherever people build, House Sparrows sooner or later come to share their house. Though described as tame and semi-domestic, neither is strictly true; humans provide food and home, not companionship. The House Sparrow remains wary of man.

Ai reusit un portret bun al vrabiutei. Detaliile sunt bune si culorile naturale. Poate daca schimbai putin POV-ul ai fiscapat de fundalul acela incarcat ce ridica semne de intrebare. Stiu desigur ca nu este un lucru usor cand te concentrezi asupra pasarii.
TFS si toate cele bune,
