World House Sparrow Day observed in Baksa

By Correspondent

MUSHALPUR, March 27 - World Sparrow Day was observed at Bishnupur and Jopa Polashi villages of Baksa district on March 20 by the Green Environment Task Force (GETF), a nature based organisation, with a view to creating awareness among the masses about conservation of house sparrows.

Sharing a nostalgic relation of rural people with house sparrows Guneswar Ramchiary, a resident of Bishnupur village, said that these human friendly birds were found in large numbers in the locality, but due to indifference or sometimes cruelty of human beings, they have been mostly killed or chased away. As they were not allowed to build their nests in house crevices, their number noticeably came down.

Binu Boro of Jopa Polashi village expressed concern over the way some youngsters use catapults against these humble courtyard visitors barring them from picking up the grains from the households.

Debajit Borah of GETF urged the people, especially the mothers, to inculcate in the children, the knowledge of house sparrow, which the world is very serious to conserve. He demonstrated different artificial nest boxes made of bamboo and wood, the experiment which has proved very successful in increasing their numbers in Madabh Mandir of Vidyapur, Nalbari.
