House Sparrow (female)

Passer domesticus


I'm sorry the picture is so dark. It was a brown bird with many dark markings on its back.


I took a picture of this bird near the beach.

If you have a field guide, looking at the House Sparrows, it should be easy to see the differences between male and female. A male has a large black bib whereas the female doesn't. The male also has brighter rufous/gray coloration especially on the head.
