Due to pollution and disappearance of greeneries like trees, plants in the city, birds which were living in cities are slowing disappearing. Also due to radiowaves, some dies (I do not know how far it is true). Can you name some birds which you see everyday or occasionally? I see plenty of crows, sparrows, woodpeckers almost every day. There are plnety of trees near my house and also sprawling garden by the side of house. Pigeons (mostly homing pegeons) are seen occasionally. Do any birds eat from your hands?

We see only crows now. Crows, crows every where, oh how I hate them. I can remember seeing a beautiful bird with a very long white tail (i dont know what it calls) plus a lot of other colourful birds about 15 yrs ago in my neighbourhood. Now thanks to developments and pollution, they are no more. We have to take our kids to the zoo to show them even kingfishers! For that even we dont have time and now they watch Discovery and National Geo channel (LOL). I dont be surprised if one day put humans also in a glass cubicle to show off!

Very kind of you reproducing the sound of birds in letters. We city dwellers are deprived of all these things.

Though there are trees nearby my house, there is always a screeching noise of vehicles and pollution. Due to this I do not see any bird in the day time. However early morning and late in the evening I hear from crows making a noise.

The civic authorities should make good parks with trees in the centre of the city, so that it becomes lung space for people and birds can take shelter in the heart of the city.
