Description

House Sparrows, a hanger-on to human dhabitation and dwellings, are dwindling in the Urban areas for various reasons. However, some flocks are seen on the fringes of Urban areas, taking a life to the Shrubs and bushes. They appear to be flourishing in these areas, as their flocks are seen constantly around these areas, foraging in the grasslands & shrubbery, and some even nesting in the thorny shrubs like Lantana. Their adaptation to this nesting in non-human, natural habitations needs to be observed and studied.This is being pursued by me in a certain location.

Description

A parent Purple-rumped Sunbird,has an Unique way of keeping the nest clean of Feacal droppings of the chicks. On a Vocal signal from the parent, the chick, turns backward and projects out of the nest-entrance and defecates, for the waiting parent to pick it up with her beak and dispose the dropping away from the nest. This perhaps prevents fungal & other microbial infestation inside the humid nest.
