Small Bird

The sparrow is small in size. Smaller than an adult’s grip. The length is only about 10 to 15 centimeters. The beak is also tiny. This bird is brown and gray. Its body looks fat.

The male and female sparrows are similar in shape. The female sparrow lays 5 to 6 eggs. These eggs hatch after being incubated for 10 to 12 days. Although all the eggs hatch, only 2 or 3 sparrow chicks usually grow to adulthood.
