You can find house sparrows in most places there are homes or other buildings. Along with the European starling and the rock pigeon, also introduced species, house sparrows are some of our listening area's most common birds.

Their constant presence outside our doors makes them easy to overlook, but their cheery and sociable nature make them a fun bird to watch.
