Creating water bodies for birds

Author: Dr. Ali Khwaja

Perma-link for article:

I am not an expert on birds, and cannot identify them by their breed. But I do find them intriguing because they are so unassuming, they fit in anywhere, and do not disturb anyone else in any way (mostly). I feel bad for them in summers because there are hardly any water bodies from where they can drink water, and I am told many die of thirst. So I do my little bit by keeping two bowls of water on the balcony, and refilling with clean water every day. You should see the way some crows come and complain loudly if the water is over, and I have not refilled !

They are harmless but they do contribute a lot to ecology. Let us do our little bit to support them -- for after all we are the intruders who have taken away their natural habitat
