Q11. Would you like to share a story about House Sparrows from this time period?The area I am reporting is my native village. I have never seen sparrows for the past 5 years in this region. But I have seen many sparrows living in my own house and were the early visitors and even the wake-up callers as do the crows all through 1990s. But it started diminishing in early 2000, but I left that area to Madurai and then abroad. And so, I dimly aware about its population between 2001-2007. But this region was full of sparrows during 1990s, as most of the village houses are traditional and served as a happy refuge for sparrows....Reported by Singaravelan, 02/06/2012
