At the moment, there are lots of House Sparrows in the garden including juveniles. In the picture above, the distinctive yellow line around the bill is called the gape. You can tell this is a juvenile House Sparrow as opposed to the vaguely similar juvenile Chaffinch because there is no white in the wing.
