HOUSE SPARROW, also known as the English sparrow. Males are reddish brown with a black bib, a small area under the beak. Females are brown with a darker brown eye stripe leading back from the eyes.

Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. ~ Psalm 84:3
