Genus Passer

Saxaul Sparrow - The Saxaul Sparrow is a passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. A large sparrow at 14–16 cm , it is a mostly dull-coloured bird, with a distinctive pattern of head stripes. Three subspecies are recognised, differing mostly in the overall tone of their plumage and in the head striping of the female. The subspecies ammodendri occurs in the west of the Saxaul Sparrow's range, while stoliczkae and nigricans occur in the east. This distribution falls into six disjunct areas across Central Asia, where it is a bird of deserts, favouring areas with shrubs such as the saxaul, near rivers and oases. It is not seriously threatened by human activities, but is not common and has lost parts of its range to habitat destruction caused by agriculture.

English sparrow - The House Sparrow is a species of passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It is also known by the alternative vernacular names English Sparrow, Indian Sparrow, and Spatzie or Spotsie. It occurs naturally in most of Europe, the Mediterranean region, and much of Asia. It has also been intentionally or accidentally introduced to many parts of the world, making it the most widely distributed wild bird. It is strongly associated with human habitations, but it is not the only sparrow species found near houses. It is a chunky little bird, with feathers mostly different shades of brown and grey.

Spanish Sparrow - The Spanish Sparrow is a rather large sparrow. at 15 to 16 centimetres in length, and a weight of 22 to 36 grams . It is slightly larger and heavier than House Sparrows, and also has a slightly longer and stouter bill.

Iago Sparrow - The Iago Sparrow , is a passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It is also known as the Cape Verde Sparrow and the Rufous-backed Sparrow. It is endemic to the Cape Verde Islands, in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. It was first collected by Charles Darwin, and was described for him by John Gould, as with the Darwin's finches. It is sometimes considered to be a subspecies of the Great Sparrow of mainland Africa, but it actually is more closely related to the House Sparrow and the Spanish Sparrow.

Sudan Golden Sparrow - The Sudan Golden Sparrow is a smaller sparrow, at 12 to 13 centimetres in length, with a wingspan of 5.7 to 7.0 centimetres . Males are distinctive in their bright yellow head and underparts, deep chestnut brown wings and back, and two white wingbars.

Females are pale sandy-buff with yellowish face, light brown wings, a back faintly streaked with chestnut, and pale yellow fading to whitish on the underparts. Juveniles are similar to females, but greyer.

Tree Sparrow - The Eurasian Tree Sparrow, Passer montanus, is a passerine bird in the sparrow family with a rich chestnut crown and nape, and a black patch on each pure white cheek. The sexes are similarly plumaged, and young birds are a duller version of the adult. This sparrow breeds over most of temperate Eurasia and Southeast Asia, where it is known as the Tree Sparrow, and it has been introduced elsewhere including the United States, where it is known as the Eurasian Tree Sparrow or German Sparrow to differentiate it from the native unrelated American Tree Sparrow. Although several subspecies are recognised, the appearance of this bird varies little across its extensive range.

Desert Sparrow - The Desert Sparrow is not afraid to come near humans and sometimes builds nests in muddy walls. The Mozabite Berbers build their homes with holes in the walls to welcome these birds, which they call "bar-rode," and if one sings all day in the house, they say this is a sign of good news. The Tuareg, who call the bird "moula-moula," also say that this bird brings good news when it comes to stay near the camp.
