The House Sparrow is a small brown and grey bird. The male
is more striking, with a prominent black bib and eye mask, plus
a chocolate hood which is divided in half by a broad grey band
running from the beak to the nape of its neck.
Length 14cm, Weight 34g, Wingspan 24 cm.
The House Sparrow’s behaviour is quite unwary. Constantly
chirping, they move about in boisterously noisy groups. Their
long association with people means that they rarely hide from
view and will hop confidently amongst people’s feet if suitable
food is lying on the ground.
