House sparrow (Passer domesticus) commonly known as Chidi or Gouriya is found everywhere in the world. The purpose of the study was to determine the sparrow population’s status in and around Patna Pakshi Vihar. Considering the issue, an attempt has been made to monitor the current status of house sparrow in Patna bird sanctuary and found a total of 185 sparrrows in the area. An open-ended type questionnaire survey was also conducted to know the perspectives of the people. Majority of the respondents recommended the installation of nest boxes in strategic locations to provide additional nesting opportunities for House sparrows, particularly in areas with limited natural nesting sites.
