dc.description.abstractThe diet of the Spanish Sparrow P. hispaniolensis consists of plant material and invertebrates; that of the House Sparrow, which converges ecologically with the Spanish Sparrow in the Mediterranean region (the species is absent from the Maltese Islands though), is similar (Snow & Perrins 1998). In the Maltese Islands, Roberts (1954) reports that Spanish Sparrows regularly feed on crops and adds that insects are eaten during spring and summer. Sultana and Gauci (1982) also report the species feeding on crops.en_GB
