Eurasian Tree Sparrow

Vilnius, Lithuania

 

These sparrows are very similar to the ubiquitous House Sparrow. The chestnut crown and black and white cheek help with the ID. While they're mostly found in Europe and Asia, we do have some in the central US where they were introduced in St. Louis in the 1870s.
