2. Few birds are happier in the company of man than the house sparrow, and for much of the year it is rare to find them far from human habitations.
3. The House Sparrow takes frequent dust baths. It throws soil and dust over its body feathers, just as if it were bathing with water. In doing so, a sparrow may make a small depression in the ground, and sometimes defends this spot against other sparrows.
