Mystery Female Sparrow

Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure that this sparrow is either a House Sparrow or a Spanish Sparrow but here is what Wikipedia said about the two species:

"the two species show their close relation in a "biological mix-up" of hybridization in the Mediterranean region, which complicates the taxonomy of this species."

I think it will be best to leave this as Spanish/House Sparrow...

It is a Rock Sparrow, you can see by the white stripe on top of eye. All sparrows can be found in that habitat, but the Rock Sparrows come to the Beach in Europe. Normally due to the Rocks surrounding the coast. 100% not a Female House Sparrow. Very common in Europe on Beaches.
