Aamaam, you are correct, Gubbachinna kuruvi. Bangalorela in the late nineties and early 2000s, thideernu most of the kuruvis went missing. :(

@G3-Enga veettu kadhavu/jannal eppavum thirandhu thaan irukkum. Thinking of getting a nesting place for them in the balcony. They come at random however. :-)

we tried keeping some food, it is really a rare visitor, shame on the city!

We have regulars - mynah, gubbachis, pigeons and once a parakeet. the advantage of living in one of the scarce greenery of the city, i suppose. We do call them gubbachis....:)(P is not aware of the language though)

@Srivats-:( True. I am in the suburbs. It is still rare, but I feel so happy on seeing them.

@chennaigirl-Aaha, Chennaila oru greeneryaa. :-) :-) It is lovely to see the sparrows hop and jump around (illaadhappo thaan adhoda arumai theriyum). In Kannada also, it is gubbachchi. Languages do get lost as generations pass. En payyanukku Tamizh ara korayaa thaan varudhu. Kannadamum avvlo thaan. :)
