Southern Grey-Headed Sparrow

Passer diffusus


An adult bird with a grey head, and the characteristic brown plumage on its wings and back.


Found foraging for seeds on the lawn in our garden.


Have seen this bird and its mate foraging often, and seen them feeding chicks which they are raising in a bird-box (specially erected by ourselves) which was previously home to a Boomslang (around 1 year ago).
