Swahili Sparrow

Passer suahelicus Reichenow, 1904

The Swahili Sparrow (Passer suahelicus) is a passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae. It lives in the savanna of southern Kenya and Tanzania. Until recently, it was usually treated as a subspecies of the Northern Grey-headed Sparrow (Passer griseus), which it hybridizes with in southern Tanzania and possibly elsewhere.
