Sparrows are small, plump, brown and grey birds with short tails and stubby, powerful beaks. They are found in all parts of the world except for Antarctica. Sparrows are social birds and often live in flocks. They are also very adaptable and can live in a variety of habitats, including cities, suburbs, and rural areas.
Sparrows are primarily seed-eaters, but they also eat insects and other small animals. They play an important role in the ecosystem by helping to control insect populations and by dispersing seeds.
Sparrows are also popular songbirds. Their songs are simple but cheerful, and they can often be heard singing from rooftops and trees.
