Abstract: The occurrence of the Tree Sparrow Passer montanus in Malta has been known since 1843, but even Despott (1917), Roberts (1954), De Lucca & De Lucca (1959) and De Lucca (1967) have taken it for a sporadic straggler. Its breeding in 1967 was published for the first lime by Sultana (1969). Since that time larger flocks have been observed, smaller ones more frequently although the Tree Sparrow is not a regular visitor to Malta (Gauci & Sultana 1971).
