House Sparrow In winter Coat.

This shot was taken in the back yard of the house, and the sparrow is wearing the winter plumage.

(Passer domesticus)

Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Passiformes
Family: Emberizidae
Genus: Aimophila
Species: A. quinquestriata

One hundred House Sparrows were introduced into Brooklyn in the fall of 1851 and the spring of 1852. From this initial introduction, the species expanded throughout the eastern United States and Canada. Aided by transplants from established populations and additional introductions from Europe, the species now ranges from central and northeastern British Columbia to the James Bay and south to Panama.
All of them are primarily seed-eaters, though they also consume small insects. A few species scavenge for food around cities, and like gulls or pigeons will happily eat virtually anything in small quantities.

I will like to wish to all the member of TN and their families and also to the ones who visit us, the Best and Healthiest Holidays and a happy and also Healthy New Year.

I will also like to thank the members for their attention and consideration during this year that is almost done.


Thanks for visiting me and thanks in advance for your comments/critiques

Una gran captura la de este gorrión, lo que más me gusta es pose que tiene como de chulito.
