Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PILANI, India - Mar 20, 2017 - One of the earliest birds one can remember right from childhood is undoubtedly the diminutive house sparrow (Passer domesticus). It is a bird that evokes fond memories and has thus found mention in folklore and songs from time immemorial. Starting from the year 2010, the day is celebrated on 20th March across the globe to raise public awareness about the decline of the house sparrow and throw light on the problems faced by the species in its daily fight for survival.
With their nests dotting almost every house in the neighborhood as well as public places like bus stands and railway stations, the sparrows typically lived in colonies and survived on food grains and tiny worms. Many bird watchers and ornithologists invariably recall with fondness how the house sparrow triggered their passion for observing birds.
Unfortunately, the house sparrow is now a disappearing species. But like all other plants and animals which were once abundant and are now facing an uncertain future, their numbers are also declining across their natural range for a variety of reasons ranging from the destruction of its habitat to lack of insect food for the young and even the increasing microwave pollution from mobile phone towers. Its slow but noticeable disappearance has been labeled as one of the biggest mysteries of recent times thus raising the concern of one and all across the globe.
JMA Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan and team of teachers have always urged the children to care for these birds by sharing a little food and water in one corner of their homes and give them the status of family members. No one has doubt that every language in the world has sparrow songs which have enthralled children for centuries. The sparrow may be vanishing but the popular nursery rhymes involving the Sparrow – Chidia songs will continue to be favorite at all times.
