    The House Sparrow is a chunky bird,typically about 16 centimeters (6.3 in) long, ranging from 14–18 centimeters (5.5–7.1 in).It has a large rounded head,
     a short tail, and a stout bill.In weight, the House Sparrow generally ranges from 24–39.5 grams (0.85–1.39 oz).Weight varies by sex, with females usually
    smaller than males.Younger birds are smaller, males are larger during the winter,and females larger during the breeding season.The natural range of the House Sparrow, also formerly known as the English Sparrow,
    is Eurasia and northern Africa.Between and within subspecies, there is further variation based on latitude, altitude, climate, and other environmental factors, under biological rules.

    There is some variation in the twelve subspecies of House Sparrow. The subspecies are divided into two groups, the Oriental indicus group,
    and the Palaearctic domesticus group. Birds of the domesticus group have grey cheeks, while indicus group birds have white cheeks

    These birds return to their birthplace after every migration (a characteristic known as philopatric). Because of this,
    local populations have adapted to the color of their habitat resulting in 15 distinct subspecies in the West.
