House Sparrow

The male House Sparrow, Passer domesticus, is easy to spot especially in his breeding colors like this one.  These little guys are sort of a nuisance since they are known to take over another nest as their own, especially in bluebird boxes.  The nest is usually made of all sorts of materials and is sloppy looking.
