House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) male
Reifel Bird Sanctuary, Delta.
Native to Eurasia and northern Africa, the House Sparrow was introduced and established as a resident from the north coast of British Columbia and southern Yukon to Newfoundland, south to South America, West Indies, Hawaii, south and east Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and many other areas of world. It is now common across all of North America except Alaska and far northern Canada. Along with two other introduced species, the European Starling and the Rock Pigeon, it is one of our most common birds.
