House Sparrow (Learn how to identify House Sparrow, its life history, cool facts, sounds and calls, and watch videos. You can find House Sparrows most places where there are houses (or other buildings), and few places where there aren’t.)
House sparrows (seen here a male) were the most numerous bird I attracted when I first started feeding birds when I lived in Hackensack. They are not a native species, but have taken over, especially where there are a lot of houses. We get a better class of birds up at Catbird Lake where it's more rural.
