House Sparrow — Passer domesticus
One of the most common sparrows, it was introduced from Europe many years ago. Sooty city birds often bear a poor resemblance to clean country males with the black throat, white cheeks and chestnut nape. Females and young lack the black throat, have a plain dingy breast and a dull eye stripe. These sparrows are very aggressive and noisy living in cities and on farms throughout the Eastern United States. They are year round residents.
