From the mid-1990s, sparrows completely disappeared from this area. Thereafter, I haven’t seen them.


Chelmala Srinivasulu - Medium sized residential colony with independent houses and apartments; next to Military Dairy Farm Satya Sai Enclave, Old Bowenpally Secunderabad Andhra Pradesh

House sparrows were in plenty here, there were acacia trees on which sparrows have been observed roosting in hundreds between 2006-2009; due to developmental activities, trees were cut down and sparrow numbers have been affected. These days less than 100 sparrows can be seen in a 2-hr survey in 2-km radius. Albeit, in a few areas sparrow nesting has been observed in apartments, old buildings, electrical and cable (distribution) boxes.

I see House Sparrow every day in my area. I have put up a nest box but they did not nest in it but chose electricity board, 3 m from my main house gate and every year raise 1-2 broods. I feed then bajra (Pennesitum seeds)which they enjoy very much. The nest box is occupied by Palm Squirrel to raise her brood of 2-3 young ones.

As our was a typical Chawl kind of Housing, the roof of the houses used to have tiles made up of Mud (Kawala) places over wooden frames. Such a roofing used to leave a lot of place of birds to nest in between. There used to at least a single nest at all times in the house. A well in the vicinity used to provide water to these birds. As people used clean Rice, Wheat and other food grains at home, sparrows used to feast on the broken grains thrown away. These days slowly that practice is giving way to clean packed grains. Even today sparrows are seen daily there but a change in house structures has left no place for these poor creatures to make nest.
