The Living Forest (7) : House Sparrow

Last weeks I was exploring several forests in the Belgian Ardennes.
This is the 7th. picture of a series illustrating the living forest.

House sparrows generally live in the neighbourhood of human settlements, but i discovered this specimen at the edge of the forest.

In large parts of Europe, populations of House sparrows are decreasing. The population has dropped in half since the 1980s !

Dutch name : Huismus
German name : Haussperling (auch Spatz genannt)
Latin name : Passer domesticus

*** A big thanks to Luc Grollie for the nomination of this picture. ***
