House Sparrows

The House Sparrow is a very popular bird found all over the country. They are not related to the Native American sparrow. They are much heavier in the chest, have a smaller tail, and rounder head. Males are much more vibrant in color than females are. House sparrows also get aggressive with other native birds and drive them out of their nests. When the male is ready to mate, he chirps until he attracts the opposite sex. When he is successful, he chirps louder and quicker to impress the female house sparrow. House sparrows usually travel in flocks and migrate to eastern Washington. Its very common to find these birds wherever humans are. Their diets usually consist of small insects and seeds, but when living in urban environments around humans, they are very dependent on human wastes. They show no sign of being endangered and continue to thrive in regions all over the country.
