It was World House Sparrow Day yesterday, so I’m dedicating this week’s BPW to the House Sparrow. We used to have so many of these very social and gregarious little birds. House Sparrows are well adapted to living around humans. The Latin word domesticus means “of the house,” a reference to the long association between the sparrow and humans. The decline of the House Sparrow in the Netherlands is alarming, as is the decline of other common birds that share its habitat.
