    Today is World Sparrow Day!

    Sparrows are one of the most common bird species in Poland and can be found throughout the country, from urban areas to rural landscapes. It is no wonder then that Poles recognize them without any problems. Today, we celebrate World Sparrow Day! Read more about this holiday below.

    There are two species of sparrows that are commonly found in Poland: the house sparrow (Passer domesticus) and the tree sparrow (Passer montanus).

    The house sparrow is a ubiquitous bird in Poland, known for its distinctive chirping and bold, sociable nature. These birds are typically found in urban and suburban areas, where they can often be seen foraging for food in parks, gardens, and on the streets. They are known to be opportunistic feeders and will eat a variety of foods, including seeds, grains, insects, and even human food scraps.

    The tree sparrow is another common species in Poland, often found in more rural areas and woodland habitats. These birds are smaller than house sparrows and have distinctive chestnut-colored caps on their heads. They are also known for their high-pitched chirping, which can be heard in the spring and summer months as they establish their territories and search for mates.

    Both house sparrows and tree sparrows are important members of Poland’s bird population, playing an important role in the ecosystem by helping to control insect populations and serving as a food source for larger predators. They are also beloved by many Poles, who enjoy watching and feeding these lively little birds. In fact, it’s not uncommon to see bird feeders and nesting boxes for sparrows in gardens and public spaces across the country.
