House Sparrow - Passer domesticus 
Summary:

The house sparrow is the second most notorious urban pest bird. It lives on urban scraps and is extremely adaptive.

Their legs and toes enable them to perch on branches. They are boisterous, intelligent birds that roost in noisy flocks.

Habitat:
  • Human settlements;
  • Likes roosting in tree branches, on ivy-covered walls, and under roof eaves;
  • Prefer small enclosed spaces like house shutters, drainage piping, building rafters and corrugated metal siding for building nests in;
  • Being aggressive, they will force other birds out of their ‘home’;
  • Urban, suburban and human settlements in all habitats.
Breeding:
  • Nests on buildings and in trees;
  • Builds large nests that often hold several families;
  • Clutch:1-6;
  • One breeding pair can grow 2000+ birds in two to three years.
Damage:
  • Degrading the aesthetics of potentially neat and beautiful buildings;
  • Sparrows may cause a health risk when HACCP standards are not met by food processing companies as a result of birds entering factories and warehouses:
    • bird droppings damage and infest raw materials, products in process and finished goods;
  • Nests near electrical points/lines or in chimneys are a great fire hazard;
  • Bacteria, fungal agents, and ectoparasites in droppings may be a health risk;
  • Makes a lot of noise when moving in flocks.
