passer domesticus


sparrows have beautiful voices and they're chirping and singing can be heard all over. Other unique characteristics are very smooth, round heads, and rounded wings. male sparrows have reddish feathers on their backs and females are brown and striped.


sparrows breed mainly in native next grass and fescue Prairie with little to no shrubs, although they are so nasty and dry wetlands baisns, wet Meadows, areas with planted cover, or dense grass within hair crops. They seem to be more tolerant of agriculture habitats than some other grassland birds.


sparrows have the ability to fly at the speed of 38.5 km an hour and can even reach the speed of 50 km an hour. Male and female sparrows can be easily distinguished by their father coloration: males have reddish backs and a black bed, while females have brown backs with stripes.

Hello anderson.camilleri, and Welcome to the Project Noah community! We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours). There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See Note that most missions are "local.” Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme. Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures.” So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around!
