House sparrow male and female artwork

House sparrow

I see a bird with a black bib and grey crown, the feathers on it's back are streaky brown...it's a house sparrow!

The house sparrow

  • My black bib and face mask mean I'm a male
  • I like to live near people
  • My chunky beak is good at cracking open seeds
