The House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a bird of the sparrow family Passeridae, found in most parts of the world. This little chap enjoyed the water in my garden (South Africa)
All of the House Sparrow’s vocalisations are variations on its short and incessant chirping call. Transcribed as chirrup, tschilp, or philip, this note is made as a contact call by flocking or resting birds, or by males to proclaim nest ownership and invite pairing.
