House Sparrow

January 21, 2007

Where there is human habitation, there seems to be the House Sparrow. An Old World sparrow, they were first introduced to the States in New York in 1850, and by 1910 had spread to California. Tough, adaptable fellers, aren't they? Because they are so ubiquitous, I didn't fully appreciate the beauty of the color in the male until I prepared one.
