When did you spot a house-sparrow last?March 20 is observed as World Sparrow Day. Since yesterday the media is abuzz with reports about the significance and importance of the house sparrow. Watching such coverage in the media took me to my childhood days when I used to hear the chirping of the sparrow in my courtyard and watch them play hopping here and there. We used to spot their nests and see female house sparrow feeding her fledgling (baby bird).
The house sparrow was once the most common bird in the world. However, since past few years, the population of this bird is on the decline due to environmental degradation.
