Passer diffusus
Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources





The southern grey-headed sparrow has a white upper eyelid (often difficult to see; best seen in the 3rd row birds) and a paler breast and belly and a smaller bill than the northern grey-headed sparrow. It can be seen in southeastern and southwestern Tanzania and on the coastal islands. The upper four photos were taken in the Okavango delta (4-16). The left 3rd row photo was also taken in the Okavango delta (9-10), courtesy of Mike Graham. The others were taken at Emayani (12-12).
