Kenya Rufous-Sparrow

Passer rufocinctus Fischer & Reichenow, 1884

The Kenya Sparrow, also known as the Kenya Rufous Sparrow (Passer rufocinctus) is a sparrow found in Kenya and Tanzania. It tends to be found in dry wooded savanna and agricultural areas. Some authorities have lumped the Great Sparrow (P. motitensis), the Kenya Sparrow, and the Socotra Sparrow (P. insularis) into P. motitensis following Dowsett and Forbes-Watson (1993). Some authorities also lump Shelley's Sparrow and the Kordofan Sparrow with this species, or all three with the Great Sparrow. Source: Wikipedia
