In Guwahati, the numbers of house sparrows have been growing by the day. Sparrow roost are now a common sight  in different neighborhoods of the city. It is no more the Assam-type roofs or mud and thatch structures, the sparrows are now adaptating to the concrete structures in the urban areas.

The documentary, I Spy Sparrows, tries to explores the reasons behind the increasing numbers of sparrows.
