Iago sparrow(female)

Passer iagoensis


This species is endemic to the Arcipelago, it has the same cream-colored supercilium of the male but it lacks the beautiful red head. They are very common everywhere on the island and are not timid at all. They aren't shy at all and try to eat your breakfast whenever you get distracted.
