House Sparrows are sociable and noisy birds.
Their numbers are sadly declining and are on the red list, meaning their is a threat to the bird’s population.
The latin name for a House Sparrow is Passer domesticus.
They like to nest in holes, crevices and nest boxes. They usually nest in loose colonies.
The main nesting season is from April to August, with the female laying around 2-6 eggs. They can also have up to three broods a year.
