The Dead Sea Sparrow (Passer moabiticus), as its name suggests, is a breeding bird around the River Jordan, Dead Sea, and into Iraq, Iran and western Afghanistan. Breeding recorded in Cyprus (1981/1982) but is probably extinct there now. It is migratory or dispersive, although the regular wintering grounds of this nomadic species are largely unknown, except that the eastern race winters in Pakistan. Flocks of the nominate western race have been found in winter further south in the Middle East. More

Note: This subspecies of Dead Sea Sparrow is not known to occur in the Oriental Region. Normally, it is not the policy of OBI to include such extralimital subspecies, but since the chances of obtaining images of the "correct" subspecies yatii are very slim, an exception has been made in this case. The breeding male of yatii is described as having a yellow wash on the underparts, strongest on the breast and flanks, and paler more sandy-brown upperparts. More

The male Dead Sea Sparrow has a grey crown, rear neck and cheeks, and a small black bib. It has a pale supercilium shading to buff at the rear, and yellow neck sides. The upperparts are dark-streaked reddish brown, and the underpants are grey-white. The female is like a small House Sparrow, with a streaked brown back, greyish head and buff-white underpants. She is paler and smaller billed than her relative, and sometimes shows yellow on the neck sides. More
