Eurasian Tree Sparrow

Passer montanus

Description:

A very common bird here in the Philippines, and I bet most of europe and asia as well, given the name. It's pretty widespread and is very abundant in cities and towns here.

Habitat:

The Eurasian Tree Sparrow breeds most in temperate Europe and Southeast Asia. As widespread it is, it was introduced into the Philippines and naturalized here as well.

Notes:

I've been taking more and more shots of these birds since they're very frequent up on our rooftop. imo, they help me get better shots since I need to adjust the lens and shoot it pretty quickly before they take off. Currently I have a canon eos 1100d which isn't much help when taking these birds (especially when I have only a 18-55mm lens). I took the shots using my Dad's nikon d7000 (with a 18-108mm lens, which really makes all the difference concerning the zoom).
