Description

See this House Sparrow every day. It looks like a female house sparrow but it has black spots near its legs. Young males don’t normally look like this. It looks to be an adult. There is another sparrow like this with balck spots only near its legs. Young males normally only have it under their chin. I saw a half-white male House Sparrow a couple of days ago. All near his tail was white.

Young Male Or Female House Sparrow?

As you can see it has black spots on it. All the way near its legs.

    The half white House Sparrow might have been leucistic. I don’t know about the black spots though.
