The House Sparrow is ubiquitous all over the world. The females are a dull brown color with a yellow beak and a few shades of brown on their backside. The male has grey on top of its head with a black and white throat and an overall richer brown color.

Experiences & anecdotes

12/16/2022 - I feel so conflicted about this bird. Originally from Europe, they can now be found all over the world. They are super adaptable and thrive in cities and other urban areas around humans. I took a trip to Greece recently, and while I was there I realize I've never captured audio of this bird. When we visited Marathon, Greece I captured a short clip of their calls.
