@Daniele thank you for explaining it, I did not realise that it worked like that. Thanks again :-)

Hi Rachel and welcome to Project Noah, you have some nice pictures.
This female House Sparrow can be easily confused with the local Rock Sparrow over here (Iberia), which has a much narrower paler crown, more of a stripe than a band, darker streaks on the breast and a yellow throat patch which is often difficult to see.

Hi sarahaw1981! Ashley T is correct. If you do agree with a suggested ID (binomial name), use the "+" sign in the existing suggestion. If you have extra information, such as sex, add it in as a comment only. It is important to confirm suggestions this way, as once a suggestion has received 3 votes it leaves the Unidentified list. Any duplicate suggestions will be deleted by the Project Noah rangers team. You can find out more on Project Noah's guidelines under our FAQ page. Thank you!

My information was more detailed, it was not wrong or misleading. I'm unaware of undertaking such an action going against Project Noah's guidelines!!!

Hi Sarahaw1981, there is no need to suggest an ID when someone else previously suggested the same species. Please only suggest an ID when there are no previous suggestions or you think it is something different, thanks!
