Discover the Sparrow

The sparrow, which is also known as Passer domesticus in Latin, is one of the most common species in the world. It can be recognized by its brown-black feathers that become more greyish on the sides and stomach. Its tail is much shorter than its wings, while its beak and legs are also short. Its unharmonious chirping and its hopping when it’s on the ground also characterize it.

The lifestyle of the sparrow

Habitat :

Sparrows favour locations frequented by humans. That’s why they are found in larger numbers in commercial and industrial parks, agricultural environments, residential areas, and urban lawns than in forests or sparsely populated areas. They frequently attack and threaten other birds, because their modest flocks occupy a relatively small area.

Diet :

Sparrows are avid eaters. They prefer seeds but—also opportunistic—they may occasionally feed on insects, small fruits, berries, and food put in bird feeders.

Reproduction :

Sparrows build their nests in the cracks and crevices of buildings, in branches, or around trees. The female lays four to six eggs, which hatch after she has incubated them for around 21 to 23 days. Sparrow chicks leave the nest less than three weeks after their birth.

The risks associated with the sparrow

The house sparrow is a species that doesn’t migrate. That’s why, during the winter, it’s not uncommon to see sparrows inside warehouses, businesses, and other places where they can find heat and food.
