Tree Sparrow | Joel Walley Wildlife Photography
The Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus) is a rare bird in the UK, with the RSPB estimating the species declined 93% in the UK between 1970 and 2008. Smaller than a House Sparrow (Passer domesticus), Tree Sparrows have a black patch on their cheek along with a brown cap, compared to the grey cap of House Sparrows.
