Bird migration in India...let's know...

Currently, groups of migratory birds are periodically visible in the sky as they head back to their home nation in the far north after spending the winter in India. This pattern is expected to last until the month of March. Birds are finding it harder and harder to migrate over great distances as time goes on. Lack of water supplies, farming that uses chemicals and pesticides, illegal hunting, air pollution, etc. are the main causes of this. 

The number of carnivorous, grain- and seed-eating birds has declined, which, according to the most recent assessment of the state of birds in India, suggests that poisons such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides are present in the food chain. However, bird habitat has been lost as a result of tree-cutting and the creation of concrete woods. At the most recent Convention on Migratory Animals (COP14) in Samarkand, resolutions were made to prioritize the conservation of 14 migratory species, including four bird species, in addition to recognizing the Central Asian Flyway. 

In addition, four other Ramsar sites have been certified by Ramsar in India. However, the extent of these conservation areas has to be expanded, particularly in the ganga plains, which are home to Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and jharkhand and are situated on the Central Asian Flyway. 

The science of bird knowledge and comprehension is still very new in our nation. While attempts are being made to conserve birds, they pale in comparison to the rate at which the habitat is deteriorating. It is evident that the significance of birds is crucial for attaining human prosperity and sustainable development, in addition to their importance for the environment. To maintain ecosystem services and biodiversity, bird habitat conservation and upkeep are crucial. The visiting birds and the sound of nature must be preserved in such a circumstance.
