Sparrows are small birds, often considered similar to swallows. They have a small body and slender wings, and they are often found in small groups. These birds are notable for their brown-to-red coloration, as well as their narrow beaks.
Sparrows fly around and often nest near roof linings of buildings. Their nests are easy to see and identify for their "basket-like" shape.
Sparrows are not dangerous to humans. However, they can become a nuisance, especially because they can make some noise and nest on and around roofs and other structures.
