 The modern-day cities are no less than concrete jungles as the greenery has given way to high-rise apartments and commercial buildings. Amidst all this development, we have lost touch with the sparrows, pigeons, crows and other types of birds who earlier used to sit and chirp in our balconies. But as there are no trees around and they are not getting food, they are left with the option of looking for another place to live. However, everyone should try to maintain greenery in their surroundings, people can maintain a small garden in their balconies or terrace and they should also do something so that birds also come back in their localities.

We need to worry about birds

It is our duty to do something to help the birds survive in such tough conditions as they are pretty important in maintaining a balance in the ecosystem. Birds are a great source of fertilizers; they help in pollination and also play an important part in controlling the numbers of pests and insects. Birds are very helpful for the farmers as well.

 How can we help them?


We can help the birds by putting up elevated bird feeders, birdhouses and by also providing them with drinking water. Planting trees and plants will also help them and make sure that if you have a cat, it should not be allowed to go outside in daytime. Stop using harmful pesticides in your garden because then the birds can get poisoned by eating seeds, insects, fruits, etc.

They are part of food chain

Mostly the birds are carnivores and they play an important role in keeping the population of insects, rodents, etc., in control. While the small birds make insects their target, big birds like eagle hunt the poisonous snakes. Birds help the farmers by saving their crops from the insects by eating the insects and this also reduced the use of pesticides which are also not for good for humans.

Birds can be kept as pets but we will not encourage anyone to keep birds in cage. In fact, it is a great and soothing experience to watch different species of birds feeding from the bird feeder that you have made. Watching beautiful birds in your garden can help you relieve stress.

They also help in cleaning the nature

Birds clean nature by eating up the corpses of dead animals or the decay matter. Birds also feed on the grains or fruits which are thrown in open and by doing this; they are cleaning the nature and saving humans from many diseases which could spread if birds do not act as scavengers.

Improve the fertility of land

Birds increase the fertility of land as their excreta is a rich source of uric acid which gets converted to ammonia and is good manure for plants. This is one more way by which birds help the farmers in increasing the production of their fields. So what are you waiting for, get yourself surrounded by these beautiful birds and get your mood cheered up.
