A Sparrow and a Thrush

Introduction

            People bump into birds in gardens, but few of them can determine the type of bird they saw. During elementary school, students are taught to differentiate birds based on the size and shape of the beak, male or female, claws, eyes, size, and color of feathers. Few people reckon that some birds resemble each other, but the proportions are dissimilar. Also, the habitants, type of food they eat, and climate influence the type of birds we see. A crown differentiates a tree sparrow and house, but this essay will discern the major differences between a sparrow and a thrush.

           Sparrows belong to thePasseridae family or the Emberizidae scientific family. Sparrows are usually small in size. They grow to about six inches long. However, the different types of the bird have different sizes but size inches in the average length. Sparrows have giant feet to scratch the ground when fetching seeds and pollen to eat. Their bodies are stout. They have cone-shaped beaks to peck up food. Customarily they are plain, brown in color. Their heads and wings are rounded. They have beautiful voices that can be heard when singing and chirping. They partake in birdbaths. Female sparrows have brown and striped feathers on their backs whereas male feathers are reddish. Sparrow’s habitats depend on the many species. They live in forests, fields, meadows, swampy areas and deserts. Basically, they can live in a variety of habitats. They are spread across the globe. Sparrows also eat insects, fruits, moths and berries. Young sparrows are feed with insects. Sparrows’ nests are built low on the ground. The nests are small made of grass, twigs and small plants but very strong. Nests can hold four to five small white eggs. Eggs hatch in less than 14 days.

            Thrush belongs to the Turdidae or the passerine bird family. Thrushes are small to medium-sized, plump, soft plumaged birds. They feed insects, fruits and other invertebrates such as worms. Customarily, they live in wooded areas or warm climates. They can migrate to warm areas during the summer. Their wings are small in size. Most thrushes are grey or brown in color but with their underpants’ are spotted. Their nests are cup-shaped. They can line their nests with mud. They lay two to five spotted eggs. Both the male and female take care of the young ones. Their nests are made of loosely woven grass, leaves and small pieces of wood. They use pine needles to reduce parasite infestation. Their nests are situated on branches or trunks of a tree although other species live in holes. Thrushes usually defend their food sources. They are not afraid to take on birds that attack their nests.

           Sparrows and thrushes are two different birds. Sparrows are small in size, whereas thrushes are small to medium in size. Sparrows have giant feet to scratch grounds in search of seeds and pollen. Most thrushes are insectivorous. Sparrows are somewhat reddish-brown while thrushes are greying brownish with spotted underpants. Sparrows can live in any part of the world, whereas thrushes prefer hoody and warm areas. Sparrows’ nests are well built and situated low on the ground. Thrush nests are loosely woven with grass, wood, leaves and mud lining. The nests are clung on branches or tree trunks. Sparrows lay four to five white eggs while thrushes lay two to five spotted eggs. Both male and female thrushes raise young ones. Thrushes protect their sources of food and nests.
