The other Sparrow

Russet Sparrow

There were lots of Russet Sparrows in the park.

The common urban sparrow in Japan is the Eurasian Tree Sparrow. This fills the same niche as House Sparrows do in Europe. Tree Sparrows in Europe are more birds of the woods and Russet Sparrows fill a similar niche here. Confused?

Russet Sparrow

Anyway it’s not a species I often photograph.
