Sparrow (Goraya)

Sparrow (Goraya)

Sparrows: Sparrows (Goraya) were once abundant in the city spaces and rural markets in India. But rising concrete jungles, increasing pollution and now, mobile phone towers are causing them to disappear from the Indian landscape. Goraya is now announced a state bird of Delhi on 6 Oct 2012. The first World Sparrow Day was celebrated on March 20, 2010 across the globe to celebrate the beauty of the house sparrow.
