Sparrows of India

Eurasian Tree Sparrow
On the occasion of World Sparrow day, here are the five types of Sparrows found in India.

The Eurasian and Russet Sparrows are from the hilly areas; The Sind sparrow and Spanish sparrow are from the semi desert areas of India; And the House sparrows...  which were once seen  so often, are rarely seen these days:(
