The Passer is a small bird species. On the territory of Bulgaria there are 4 species – the sparrow is the most widespread, and in the villages and in the countryside there are the Polish sparrow, the sparrow rocky and the relatively new species with a low number – the Spanish sparrow.

They feed mainly on plant food, insects and other small invertebrates, feeding their little ones primarily with animal food. Their bead is fitted with a strong musculature and a scissor-fastening edge at the base, making it especially suited for shredding hard seeds. The nests are rounded with a lateral hole, can be found in tree branches or in holes.


  1. Thanks for this article. I read it with interest because where I am (Thailand), there are sparrows, and because of my partner’s granddaughter throwing cooked rice around, there are even more in the garden…but I’ve noticed sparrows are largely absent in England and I sought an explanation. Your article mentions seed-eating and bills. Of course, in my opinion, sparrows have gone from England because of laws, hedgerow-loss, cleanliness, and other environment-changers. Sparrows are lovely, little birds, were a part of my childhood in England, now seem lost forever over there!

  1. I love watching these birds, but I’m terrible at telling one species from another. About all I can identify are seagulls, blue jays, red-winged blackbirds, pelicans, ducks, geese, and some herons. The rest I just enjoy without knowing their names.
