These little guys are one of the most common animals in the world. We call them House, English, or European Sparrows. However they may have come from African originally. No one knows. I’ve read they should be called Human Sparrows since they are everywhere we are and interact with everything we do.
The first bird I remember was this Sparrow. Living in New York City we would throw them pieces of bread in the alleyway from the tenement windows.
I never see a House Sparrow in a marsh or swamp. They really do like the city. These photographs were taken in a town park in Charleston.
