House sparrows were introduced to eastern Australia from Britain between 1863 and 1870 according to Birds In Backyards. (This is another bird destroyed on sight in Western Australia.) Sparrows are large finches. They breed all year round, concentrating on Spring and Summer. Male and Female bond for life.
I’ve just read about the Eurasian Tree Sparrow. On introduction, it never spread like the house sparrow and is confined to southern New South Wales and Central Victoria. I think I’ve seen them here, too.
Thanks for looking.
Do have a great weekend. 🙂
