Abstract

Nesting ecology of house sparrow, Passer domesticus, was studied from August 2013 to December 2013 in Punavasipatty and Koothur Villages, Tamil Nadu, India. In total, 111 and 109 nests of house sparrows were located and used for the present study in Punavasipatty and Koothur Villages respectively. Nests were constructed on both plants and man-made substrates using largely small twigs, rootlets, fibers, rugs, etc.
