Russet Sparrow

The Russet Sparrow (Passer rutilans), also called the Cinnamon or Cinnamon Tree Sparrow, is a passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. A chunky little seed-eating bird with a thick bill, it has a body length of 14–15 cm (5.5–5.9 in). Its plumage is mainly warm rufous above and grey below.

Its vocalisations are sweet and musical chirps, which when strung together form a song
