See below ( the one after Chandrima Home)for the 2000-2004 story of this same population:
In 2005 or 2006 I don't clearly remember the Jasmine creeper was cut down and after that I kept a nest box. Its nothing but a old carton (c.25 cm X c.12 cm) I covered it with a paper so that it does n't open up after the sparrows stuff the nest materials inside. I made a small entrance (c.7X7 cm) and this home was immediately accepted by a pair. Since then I see recruitment's very regularly. And once the eggs hatched the young ones start calling for food. Day by day the intensity of their calling increases and it will be louder. I used to sleep in the next room. I generally go to sleep very late in the night generally and obviously get up also late. But these young ones (2-3) start calling early in the morning and sometimes it used to be so loud that I had to wake up early.

During this time the parents occasionally enter the room where I sit. If the ceiling fan is on they skilfully manoeuvre themselves away from it. They generally enter this room since there will be cobwebs in the corners of this room and they pick up the spiders from there. I moved out of this place in August 2008. They were there then. I told my friend (house owners son) not to remove that box. Don’t know what happened to them now! Shall call up that guy and inform here.

The sparrows are routinely fed with grains in our house since the time we have shifted (2003). They have also build nests in our house (in spaces between AC vents). It is amazing to watch them chirping away and fighting for food among themselves.

I see House sparrow in the place where I lived from 2004 to 2008 (normally around 5-10 of them). The time period I am reporting here is from 2000-2004, however I moved here only in 2004 and I saw sparrow nest inside a thick Jasmine creeper right in front of my house. In 2005 or 2006 this Jasmine creeper was cut down for some reason. So I kept a nest box in my front room of my house. It was occupied immediately (within a month or so I think) and they started breeding and I very often see 2-3 young ones peeping out from the nest box entrance with wide open (Yellow color gape flanges ) and asking for food from their parents. More on this in my next observation..:)
