The sparrow poster is perfect for a person who loves birds of all kinds, such as a backyard bird watcher. Actually, sparrows are among the most widespread of all wild birds so it’s almost impossible not to watch them.
Sparrows tend to nest on buildings and houses. They are mostly seed-eaters but also consume small insects. Some species scavenge for food around cities and will eat small amounts of almost anything.
Their brown mottled plumage makes for great camouflage, and they are intensely social.
Fun facts about sparrows:
