They aren't native, but an invasive species, so they are usually listed in a separate section in bird books.

You're right, I just found it at the very back of the book, not with all the other sparrows.

They're listed in a separate section because they're in a separate family from the Emberizids (New World Sparrows). ;) The Old World Sparrows (like the House and Eurasian Tree Sparrows) are actually in Passeridae, and are sometimes referred to as the "true sparrows". The New World Sparrows are in the same family with the buntings, etc.
