Urban Nest at CKBS on January 13
An orchestra of trickling dew drops, melodious whistles of dancing Fantails, a busy Blue Throated Barbet on the top of the dead coconut trunk, the 'phew's of Black-hooded Orioles, the continuous 'tweet's of Common Tailorbirds, the ever-busy Purple Sunbirds on tree tops and an Orange Headed Ground Thrush on the ground - this is how we were welcomed at Chintamoni Kar Bird Sanctuary on January 13 morning!
The chill in the wind couldn't stop participants to join us from as far as Kharagpur. The morning magic stunned us as the sunrays crawled down through the tree trunks and kissed the ground. We missed the participants who couldn't join us for personal reasons.
The best takeaway for us? When a participant, a Class VI student, told us that he felt the urgency with which we, humans, should get involved in initiatives that ensure our environment is protected from the onslaught of man-made pollution. We couldn't agree more.
