House sparrow        Images © Mark A. Chappell

The ubiquitous house sparrow, now found in most of the world thanks to intentional and unintentional introductions by humans, is native to Europe and Asia.   There, as elsewhere, it is most often found in towns, villages, and farms.   These birds were photographed at a small farm in eastern Poland.
