surendra shetty - near balthangady market Dakshina Kannada Karnataka

During my chilhood when we used to visit Mangalore, Dharmasthala and other religious places we used to observe plenty of sparrows.
This year when i visited last week I was particularly observing, but to my dismay not a single sparrow was observed around Moodbidri, Dharmasthala but on my way i saw these birds near the market area of Balthangady.
One of the reasons for their dwindling population may be the result of trees being felled for road widening.


surendra shetty - the orient, near kapole boarding Matunga East Mumbai Maharashtra

there is a fig tree adjoining my room, i used to see sparrows, pigeons, crows, parrots and squirels.
Started keeping water and tried feeding them with rice, bajra, jowar.
These sparrows prefered a typical small grains locally known as " kang " they just love it.
Early morning they will perch on the fig tree chirping which is an indication that it is there feed time.
