Series: Not long after my father built this birdhouse for his backyard, a House Sparrow couple took up residence. On one of my visits there, during the summer of 2016, I could hear the "peeping" of their babies through the kitchen window. So I quickly grabbed my camera an took several photos of both of the parents going off to find food and returning to feed their young.
Backyard Birdhouse (Urban Neighborhood)
House Sparrows have lived around humans for centuries. Look for them on city streets, taking handouts in parks and zoos, or cheeping from a perch on your roof or trees in your yard. House Sparrows are absent from undisturbed forests and grasslands, but they’re common in countryside around farmsteads.
