House Sparrow

It’s always nice to find a House Sparrow away from the house so to speak. Perched in the dried cattails and with all those shades of brown and rusty reds they just seem to look more at home.

The House Sparrow was introduced into Brooklyn, New York, in 1851. By 1900 it had spread to the Rocky Mountains. Two more introductions in the early 1870s, in San Francisco and Salt Lake City, aided the bird’s spread throughout the West. House Sparrows are now common across all of North America except Alaska and far northern Canada.
