Call and get a Sparrow House

"As part of this campaign, we are distributing nearly 10,000 'Sparrow Houses' for free. You can put it up in your balconies and verandahs. You can hang it down from pergolas, or even put it up on a tree if you have one. We will also give shrubs, seed balls, and a small packet of grains to facilitate a proper nesting atmosphere for these birds.

Glad to know :)
Are you in Bangalore? If not, you could probably call those numbers, or mail Sandhya (who answered my call) at - she can probably tell you if they are available elsewhere too.

My house is in the main road. How much time would it take to get the sparrows to my nest boxes or are they really going to come? if sparrows come to my house i will even try buying nest boxes for my school .

Haven't asked around, but they never came, at my house, and at the houses of the friends who tried this out, sadly :(
