Sparrows are a family of small passerine birds. Many species nest on buildings and the house- and Eurasian tree sparrows, in particular, inhabit cities in large numbers.
Due to their numbers sparrows are among the most familiar of all wild birds. They are primarily seed-eaters, though they also consume small insects. Generally, sparrows are small, plump, brown and grey birds with short tails and stubby, powerful beaks.
