Ah yes maybe but how can you tell they were male Tree Sparrows?

Thanks to everyone who responded to our request re finding Tree Sparrows at
the Melbourne Zoo. The response was generous and many. Yesterday, we were
lucky enough to attend the Twilight Concert at the Zoo. Using info. from all
the respondents, we began our search soon after entering at 5:30pm. The
first sparrows sighted were nearly all fledglings - they were everywhere.
Eventually, their parents turned up and they all proved to be House
Sparrows. This was the case around the Cafeteria, near the entrance, along
the primate walk and around the giraffe enclosure. After about an hour and
many hundreds of sparrows later, three male Tree Sparrows were sighted in
the Barn Paddock of the elephant complex. Brian & Meg
