[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Passer domesticus) is a member of the Old World sparrow family Passeridae, and is, somewhat controversially, considered 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 known as the English Sparrow to distinguish it from native species

Wherever people build, House Sparrows sooner or later come to share their abodes. 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.

Hello Iulian,

This is a very beautiful house sparrow which is very different than ours here in Malaysia. I like the image against the clear background. Good details with vivid plumage and clarity.

Well done.

Hello Iulian,
Nice capture of a male House Sparrow that is sharp and taken from a good POV to show the characteristics, especially the grey on the head. In Swedish we call this 'grey sparrow'.
Thanks for sharing this,
Reagrds, Ivan
