The house sparrow is typically about 16 cm (6. 3 in) long, ranging from 14 to 18 cm (5. 5 to 7. 1 in). It is a compact bird with a full chest and a large, rounded head. Its bill is stout and conical with a culmen length of 1. 1–1. 5 cm (0. 43–0. 59 in), strongly built as an adaptation for eating seeds. Its tail is short, at 5. 2–6. 5 cm (2. 0–2. 6 in) long. The wing chord is 6. 7–8. 9 cm (2. 6–3. 5 in), and the tarsus is 1. 6–2. 5 cm (0. 63–0. 98 in). In mass, the house sparrow ranges from 24 to 39. 5 g (0. 85 to 1. 39 oz). Females usually are slightly smaller than males. The median mass on the European continent for both sexes is about 30 g (1. 1 oz), and in more southerly subspecies is around 26 g (0. 92 oz). Younger birds are smaller, males are larger during the winter, and females are larger during the breeding season. Birds at higher latitudes, colder climates, and sometimes higher altitudes are larger (under Bergmann’s rule), both between and within subspecies.
