World Sparrow Day 2013

North Americans may find this hard to believe, but the House Sparrow ( Passer domesticus ) is beloved around the world yet slowly declining throughout the Old World. The annual observance of World Sparrow Day reminds us of the impact our changing world has on even the most common species as well as how much we miss the birds we take for granted when they are gone. Most of us in the United States are unwitting Sparrow Heroes , providing water, food, and nesting sites.
