Today is "World Sparrow Day"

The sparrows are on the verge of extinction and hence the need of the hour - "World Sparrow Day"...rampant urbanization, increase in mobile towers have caused enormous threat to this species. Every year 20th March is observed for them, to increase awareness to save sparrows.

They were all over the place here in my younger days specially in shops where rice bags and other cereals were kept open. The shop keepers allowed them to peck there. My friend used to keep feed on her window sill and flocks of them came for it. But now I do not see a single one although I have countless others visiting our garden
@allknowing they will multiply in natural circumstances..but what we can do is restrict them from getting substracted...the radiation from mobile towers are the biggest threat to these small creatures..n unfortunately we have these towers everywhere, both in Urban n Rural setup
