Bird Feeding, Bird Bath | Nature Forever

Bird Feeding, Bird Bath | Nature Forever

In this summer don’t forget to feed and give appropriate water to wildlife. Especially, water is one of the most important things birders can add to their backyard to attract birds. All bird species need water, and adding one or more water features to your yard will quickly attract feathered friends.  Birds need water for two reasons: drinking and preening. Water helps keep a bird’s body cool both from the inside and outside. Water baths can also remove dust, loose feathers, parasites and other debris from a bird’s plumage. Offering water in your backyard will attract more birds than just food sources, since birds that would not normally visit feeders can be tempted by water features.  Any water is an improvement on a dry backyard, but moving water will attract more birds because the motion catches their eye and they can hear any dripping, sprinkles or splashes. Apologies for not using original video sounds as its got windy sound so much in recording. 

Hope you liked this video. Keep Nature alive and fruitful 😇

To all IWC members,

Here is a wonderful opportunity to earn a Naturalist certificate from the Forest Department!! 

"Melghat is the 4th largest tiger reserve in the country in terms of area and the 1st tiger reserve of the state of Maharashtra. Unlike others, Melghat has a few unique offerings for the people who care for the nature and wildlife.

Be A Naturalist is one such programme. The aim is to create awareness and understanding about some core wildlife issues including management and administration of a park which is a tiger reserve. The participants get the opportunity to directly interact with experts and top officials and learn by doing what regular forest staff does or is done only by select few from the outside world.

The programme offers field work and in house sessions mixed with fun and adventure like camera trapping, learning sign surveys, intricacies of patrolling, mapping, first aid along with the wild side which includes safaris and treks in the tiger land.

The programme is conducted by the forest department and a certificate is issued to the participants after successful completion of the course."
