Spanish sparrow male - Passer hispaniolensis Spanish sparrows often nest under the nests of large birds - storks or eagles. They build a symbiotic relationship (commensalism) and feel safe there.<br />

The Spanish sparrow or willow sparrow is a passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It is found in the Mediterranean region and south-west and central Asia. It is very similar to the closely related house sparrow, and the two species show their close relation in a "biological mix-up" of hybridisation in the Mediterranean region, which complicates the taxonomy of this species.
