Dear friends, Do you know this? In fact, I was not aware about this, there is a ‘World Sparrow day’ for us. It was on Tuesday, i.e. March 20 this year. I was reading yesterday’s newspaper and picture of Mynah and Sparrow fighting, it was mentioned bottom of the photograph, ‘Mynah and sparrow fighting on World Sparrow day on Tuesday’. I really wonder whether the birds are aware about the specialty of the day? How many of you are aware about this? Is there any particular days for other animals and birds like this?

Sparrows are around even though the number is less. Glad they too have their own special day.

@JolietJake That is really great. But in India, especially in the place where I live, those sparrow's numbers are declining.

I am not aware of it. But when I was young...about 6 or even slightly older, I used to see a lot of sparrows. Not now..now we only get to see them in outskirts of the city.

What do you think about the declining number of birds in our country? Do you think they are getting killed? (as JJ said in his views). I am not aware about this too, so asking.

@Sreekala I think it is because of these cell phone towers and pollution.

This is what I posted last year around this time...
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...

I also got surprised on seeing the picture, and caption in the newspaper, wondered how many things are unknown for us. Thank you so much.
