Birds are often common denizens of the ecosystem and have been considered as an indicator species of inhabited areas1. Studies showed that depressed abundance of various bird species in most parts of the world today, especially in urban areas, is of particular concern as many cities are growing rapidly both in area and population2,3. Among the various species of birds, the house sparrow Passer domesticus indicus (Passeriformes: Ploceidae) is one of the familiar species that has followed man everywhere and is inseparable from human habitations. The nonmigratory sparrows are widely distributed in the Indian subcontinent and occur worldwide.
