Even a wild House Sparrow you will find at Tiergarten Schönbrunn (Vienna Zoo - Austria)

The House Sparrow is a bird of the sparrow family Passeridae, found in most parts of the world. A small bird, it has a typical length of 16 cm (6,3 in) and a weight of 24–40 gram. Females and young birds are coloured pale brown and grey, and males have brighter black, white, and brown markings. One of about 25 species in the genus Passer, the house sparrow is native to most of Europe, the Mediterranean region, and much of Asia. Its intentional or accidental introductions to many regions, including parts of Australia, Africa, and the Americas,
make it the most widely distributed wild bird.
