We hope after you read this article, you will put this special day on your calendar, and help to spread the word about sparrows and World Sparrow Day.
World Sparrow Day is an international initiative promoted and sponsored by the Nature Forever Society of India and the Eco-Sys Action Foundation of France. These two organizations recognize the declining populations, especially in big cities. They are also concerned over the negative impact of a changing environment on these birds. The goal of this special day, is to raise public awareness about sparrows, and celebrate the relationship between sparrows and humans.
Sparrows are a popular bird at your backyard bird feeder, especially in winter when food sources dwindle as winter progresses. Bird watchers are thrilled by their presence. Sparrows often visit bird feeders in waves. They crowd the bird feeder and the ground in search of high energy seeds. A large population of sparrows can empty the seeds in your feeder in a single day.
Celebrate World Sparrow day by setting up a bird feeder and watching them. You are also encouraged to create and participate in special events celebrating and educating people about sparrows.
