How is it Alive?
I am a house sparrow. I am a small, plump, grey bird wandering around the streets.I respond to stimuli by flying away, somewhere away that other people won’t come near. For an example if you come near I will be scared that you might catch us and lock us forever. So because of a reason like that we try to stay away. We have different kinds of sparrows. My friend is a Chestnut sparrow, and my best friend is Eurasian sparrow. We have very strong beaks. Most of the sparrows I know live in open spaces which includes grasslands, deserts, and scrubland. We are generally known as social birds. We are probably are one of the most successful bird species on the planet. Though we are found in widely varied habitats and climates, we typically avoid extensive woodlands, grasslands, and deserts away from human development. Although we are found naturally in Europe and much of Asia. We grow and develop, but at first which is when the eggs begin to develop. With the yolk in the egg for a few days, then the sparrow hatches. The female develops a family of young animals, the patch of bare skin and plays the main part in incubating the eggs. Even when blind, we continue to be shown reproductive development. When the days are long but not when the days are short.
I live in the kingdom of animalia. I know this because I am an animal and more specifically I am a bird. My phylum is the chordata and I live in the class of aves. I am an multicellular, and I am in the chain which generally begins with an autotroph such as a green plant
Evolution and Ancestry
Survival in the Environment
We usually live where there is houses and some of us live not so near the houses. You won’t find us in woodlands, forests, or grasslands, and in extreme environments such as deserts. In spite of the disturbances of other birds, starvation and others. We eat mostly on the seeds of grains and weeds, but we are sometimes we eat insects and many other foods. Our predators include domestic cats, hawks, owls, and other predatory birds and mammals. We learn our skills of getting food by eating whatever is edible. We develop our food finding skills by moving to different places such as in towns or cities we search in garbage containers, outdoors of restaurants, and even just on the streets. It is hard to develop our food finding skills near the supermarkets, automatic doors, and near hotels too.
Role in the Environment
I am a primary consumer, but I am also a predator because my preys are worms, other kinds of plants and more. A reason why I am a primary consumer is because I eat grass which is at the bottom of the pyramid.
When I get old I can lay 2 to 5 eggs at a time. For us sparrows both sexes incubate, and our chicks hatch after 11-14 days. Our parents share nesting duties equally. The young sparrows are unable to feed themselves for about a week, we leave the nest when we are cared by their parents for around a two weeks.
