New Delhi: The number of sparrows, often found outside homes, has stabilized in the country and their widespread presence in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry has delighted bird lovers. A recent report by the Salem Ornithological Foundation (SOF) has claimed that at present, sparrow (Passar domesticus) numbers are stable across India and there is no need to take steps for their conservation. Sparrow is one of the most widely found species.
