National Birds Day

Vellalore Tank and Dots ..!!

Today is January 5, World Birds Day..!!

Have you noticed the birds that live around us and their life until you get up one morning and see the night?

If not, start to enjoy them from now on. We are committed to birds in a variety of ways. Prediction of environmental hazards. Friend of the cultivation of insects. The remains of birds have created many forests. Birds play a role in keeping the environment clean by eating waste.

The impact of human change in the environment today has led to the loss of the great bird species that lived around us. We will see what the result will be in a few years.

One species of birds found in our aquatic regions is aquatic birds and the other is classified as aquatic birds. It also includes a large number of birds from the Continents of Asia and Africa.

The birds and our birds were nested and breeding in the lake shores of the river Noyyal which flowed in our Kongu region. Due to non-desilting of water ways, the number of birds was reduced due to lack of water, food shortages and deterioration of the natural environment.

Now, after the desilting of water ways, several voluntary groups in Coimbatore have come up with a slight green erosion and the number of birds has increased. Bird counting systems confirm this.

The biodiversity of Vellalore tank, which was desilted by the Coimbatore Tank Conservation System, is a beautiful one. The tank, which had been unfilled for more than twenty years, was filled with the grace of nature two years ago, with the help of various forces, dredging the water course of the tank, removing the zinc acacia trees in the tank.

The Miyawaki Advarnam Project, which has been established to enhance its biodiversity, has so far planted 5000 saplings and is now in a growing stage. More than 100 varieties of trees and fruits which are the food for birds are mixed. Herbal Forest and Park Forest have been created to attract insects. They have become a food chain forest that attracts insects and attracts birds to eat them. The miyawaki dense forest has been planted to enable birds to live in nests. It is a habitat for birds living in the water.

The scene rye is not seen anywhere else in Coimbatore, where the vegetation of the valasai bird, Koozhaikada, is found in vellalore tank, where the nest is built and hatched and hatched. The scene of fish hunting and eating is often seen in vellalore tank. The stork and the various species of birds can be enjoyed by walking along the banks of the tank. There are also crows that drown in the water and hunt fish. There are owls and bats to patrol the pond at night.

After wandering around for food, the sun sets west in the evening, and the scene of thousands of cranes coming to the pond as white as they were.

The peacock dances along the banks of the tank. You can play with the eagles who are circling around the tank to hunt snakes and rats. The nest sits under the leaf and is enjoyed by the beautiful lying sparrow nests.

The vellalore tank has a variety of birds that can be seen soulfully enjoyed. All of these are due to the ecological environment. Thank you for the volunteers who have worked hard to make it.

Birds live around us, not only water bodies, but also in the city or village. If we provide a living environment that is worthliving for them, we can make a good environment for us to live in a pleasant way with the help of birds.

Finally, as the ornithologist Salim Ali putit, ‘birds can live without humans, but humans cannot live without birds’.
