Eurasian Tree Sparrow with nesting material?


I noticed this Sparrow with fresh grass leaves at its beak one evening. I know this is not the food (they eat only grass seeds). Is this the nesting material?

  1. Interestingly Tabib, this bird looks like our house sparrow in France!! Very similar indeed. Nice shots, it is all the time exciting to see them with nest materials.

  2. There are from same Passer genus.This is what I got from Wikipedia;House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) and Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus)

  3. There was some little voice that I didn\’t pay attention to when I commented…\”Verify it in your field guide…verify it in your feild guide.\” Yes, I see the differnece now.
