Eurasian Tree Sparrow calls

posted in: Vocalisation | 1

Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS documented the calls of the Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus malaccensis) at his Canning Garden Home in Ipoh City, Perak, Malaysia on 14th September 2012 at noon.

The sparrows were chatting in his garden, so he took the opportunity to get extended records. Most birdwatchers simply ignore these sparrows as they are so common. Thus there is “…Inadequate documentation on the calls of the Eurasian Tree Sparrow,” wrote Amar.

1. There are 3 types of “single” calls – different frequencies and slight variation in notes HERE.

2. This is a longer recording of the first set of calls HERE.

3. Composite calls – often 2 together or in a run of 3 to 7, like a chattering call (possibly spotted me and danger calls) HERE
