Wikipedia describes the house sparrow (Passer domesticus) as a species of passerine bird of the sparrow family Passeridae which is a small bird with feathers mostly in different shades of brown and grey. If the rate at which the sparrow population is declining today continues, reading about it online or in books will perhaps remain the only way to learn about this species of bird. Much needs to be done today before we can even begin to understand the change in density and number and be able to attribute it to visible indicators.
To continue the conversation on conservation, the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) and WWF India cordially invite all of you to attend a talk on “The Beautiful World of the Sparrow!” The talk will be delivered by Mohammad Dilawar and will highlight the history of one of the most loved but nearly lost bird species of the world.
Date: 16 May, 2011 (Monday)
Time: 5.30 pm
Venue: Auditorium, WWF India, Lodi Estate, New Delhi
High tea will be served at the conclusion of the talk.
