House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)

I photographed this male House Sparrow (Vrabac pokućar – Serbian) while at an outdoor restaurant in downtown Belgrade in August of 2008. A group of them were hopping on the tables and eating the crumbs left from Owen and Oliver’s bread.

The House Sparrow is originally from Europe and as you can see, has adapted well to humans. As humans have become more numerous, so has the House Sparrow. It is now found in urban areas all over the world.

There are plenty of nesting places here in Belgrade. There are many nooks and crannies found on the old apartment building s throughout the city. It is one of the most common birds one sees here.
