[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A House Sparrow, Passer domesticus. I think it's a juvenile but not 100% sure.

This sparrow occurs naturally in Europe and most of Asia, and has also been accidently introduced to the Americas, sub-Saharan Africa and Australia.

In the United States it is known as the English Sparrow, to distinguish from the native American sparrow.

House Sparrows grow to around 12cm to 14cm long.

Shot this one in wide format, and cropped slightly at the top in Photoshop. Curves and sharpening, as well.
