House Sparrow, Passer domesticus
A passing male House Sparrow, Passer domesticus, sharing a morning greeting with me. House Sparrows are strongly associated with humans and generally avoid extensive woodlands, grasslands and deserts in favor of co-habitatation with humans. This is probably the most widespread bird species in the world! It lives mainly on grass seed and grains with an occasional insect.
