Sparrows are abundant in Aligarh, especially in Dhorra area (27.9178777N & 78.0926624E) near the Aligarh Muslim University in Aligarh district of Uttar Pradesh and one can observe sparrow nests in bushes and thickets and in buildings.


Dr. Sudhanshu Kothe - Gajanan Nagar, Wardha Road, Nagpur Nagpur Maharashtra

For a few years between 2000 and 2004, sparrows had drastically reduced in numbers, from a few hundred to a few (5-10). Then they staged a comeback. Since the last few years, there are active nests in many houses. My house houses a nest on the front porch in a dead room approached by a drainage pipe. Each year, through the year, sparrows nest here.

P Jeganathan - Valparai near ATS Grocery (Kirana - Maligai) shop Valparai Tamil Nadu

I see House sparrows every time I go to ATS Grocery shop, sometimes even at very late in the evening (around 8 PM). They keep rice in open gunny sacks right in front of their shop and these birds come there to feed on them. Quite cute to watch


Sohan Dubey - Panchwati Colony(Layout), Manikonda, Hyderabad Hyderabad Andhra Pradesh

Recently I sifted to this locality in Hyderabad, this area used to be a village in city outskirts, but now heavy construction is going on in this are because of its proximity to many SEZ where many MNC's have started their offices. The are is called Manikonda Village but now it is part of Greater Hyderabad. I am afraid that due to heavy construction and increase in traffic in this area, soon the Sparrow will disappear from here. I tried building couple of shelters and started feeding Sparrow, I am looking to co-ordinate with experienced people managing this cause, so that we can try to protect our dear Sparrow. Full story with pictures shall be available on my facebook page.
