For that I covered myself with a bed sheet and lay still so that the birds could not notice me and come near. I lay still for hours. My mother used to scold me a lot for that. Those sparrows also used to nest in my house. I always get overwhelmed when I saw little baby sparrow leaning flying lessons. But today, I barely see a sparrow in my house.
