World Sparrow Day

"We have a bird feeder and we also keep water at home," Tambat said while sharing this photograph. 

March 20 is celebrated as World Sparrow Day.

The idea is the brainchild of Mohammed Dilawar of Nature Forever Society of India who wanted to protect and raise awareness of house sparrows. (Read all about it here)

The first Sparrow Day was celebrated in March 2010 across countries.

Sparrows may be not be endangered as yet, but environmentalists had reported a decline in their numbers.

Throughout the world, environmental experts, bird lovers and researchers have been appealing to people to do their bit to help them breed and increase species of house sparrows to avoid extinction.
