|House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)
|São Paulo, Brazil
Just to prove that the House Sparrow seems to get everywhere.
Originally from the Middle East there are now few parts of the world where it is not found. In South America it is found mainly to the south and east of the continent but has reached most cities elsewhere.
|It was introduced into North America in 1850, into Argentina in 1872 and it was introduced in 1906 into Rio de Janeiro possibly in an attempt to get rid of mosquitoes.|
