Male House Sparrows are brightly colored birds with gray heads, white cheeks, a black bib, and rufous neck – although in cities you may see some that are dull and grubby.

Can sparrows hear?

Bird Hearing Hearing is birds' second most important sense, and their ears are funnel-shaped to focus sound.
