House Sparrow

What we tend to call the Sparrow is actually the House Sparrow. It is a smaller sized bird although it has variations in size, depending on the region in which it lives.

This unique bird can actually swim if absolutely necessary, and it loves to take "dust baths," just "splashing" about in the dirt!
