A total of 914 House Sparrows were recorded from 61 sites. Compared with a previous study, the overall House Sparrow population declined by 27%. The sites having ration, grocery and chicken shops were found to have good House Sparrow populations. The presence or absence of roosting trees, old buildings, agricultural areas, and mobile towers didn`t affect House Sparrow populations.
