The House Sparrow is a member of the Old World sparrow family Passeridae. It occurs naturally in most of Europe, the Mediterranean basin, and much of Asia.
It has also followed humans all over the world and has been intentionally or accidentally introduced to most of the Americas, sub-Saharan Africa, New Zealand and Australia as well as urban areas in other parts of the world.
It is now the most widely distributed wild bird on the planet. It is strongly associated with human habitations, but it is not the only sparrow species found near houses. In the United States it is also colloquially known as the English Sparrow to distinguish it from American sparrows.
