Beautiful close up click.
What a find! Looks like he may enjoy being photographed.Have a nice weekend.
You were lucky to find him then Deepak, well done he's a gorgeous little fella!!
What a fantastic capture!! What a beautiful little guy he is indeed!!
I think I've seen birds like this one -- or its cousin species -- in both Malaysia and Hong Kong, and in quite large numbers. So it's really hard for me to think that they're near extinction in Mumbai! :O
Beautiful' Ek Chidiya'.Great capture.
Good Morning Such gentle creatures- add beauty to life around us.Childrens stories on Gupchi-ka abound; As children in early 50s..in fact till 70s we used to see them nest in our homes on crevices in roofs & ceilings; -but sadly have been depleting in cities. Now mostly seen in smaller towns , places esp where traditional houses exist-but happily Mumbai has many of them. God Protect them - Thanks -TR
A pic for the weather please!!!
My grandmother always called them "Spuggles". Here in North America, they are ubiquitous. I very much like Sparrows.Mine are up.
Sparrows are thought to be under threat in England too but there are a lot where I live - and it's hard to think such an ordinary bird can find life tough. Do you know why its numbers are going down in India?Lucy
Lovely !!!If I can suggest, crop from top and right with some softening may make this photograph better... Just Try !!!
Beautiful pic. Its sad that their numbers are declining. Its a beautiful bird.
I love sparrow magiceye be they in Romford, Paris or Mumbai. Nice take on the theme!
love these dainty little birds.
that's a beautiful click :)
Keep hanging on, buddy!
Wow so pretty...Happy PH! Mine is up.
wow! After a long long long time, I saw this sparrow. Few days back, I was talking to my cousin how these little sparrows used to be seen every where and now you never see them. Great click. How old is this photograph?
Shilpa, this photo was taken on 25th jun11.

I have plenty in my gardenbut they are not so cute as Mumbai sparrows;-)
Nice capture! LOVE it! I hope you guys get to preserve them, they're cute! :)Mariposa's PH
Lovely capture for this weeks theme. Happy weekend.
Apparently sparrows are everywhere ! Cute picture !
Hey thats a beauty. Miss them, now that we are above the trees. Great study. By the way how did u reach Gilbert Hill?
I won't ask you how you managed to capture a sparrow sitting still, because I won't understand any of the photographic details. suffice to say that it is a stunning pic and she is a beauty.
It's population is in decline..? That's really sad. I used to see many during my childhood in Nashik. Now I see them again in Toronto.
oh she is so cute :)

The little one - so cute - so chirpy
