BRS Rajya Sabha MP J Santosh Kumar trained his camera lens on some small birds including cuckoo, perched on branches of trees this Sunday, September 17. He continued posting on X photos of birds and wildlife chiefly to promote awareness among people of nature and environment. This is a weekly dose of photography campaign has been running for the last several months.

Santosh, founder leader of Green India Challenge, snapped four pics –  a yellow billed prinia, two cuckoos and a coppersmith barbet – according to Heeresh Dubey, an X follower of the MP.  The X postings of morning got by night as many as 4,596 views, 222 likes and 73 reposts. When we take a look at these birds, it is interesting to know some of them are commonly found in the North India or upper Himalayan regions.

But, we can see them in Hyderabad now. This shows the migration or spread of the birds population, thanks to the flora of Telangana, particularly the region’s water bodies presence. the birds play a major role in ecological protection and biodiversity. All these birds of this Sunday are cut and are vulnerable to trade or capture by pet lovers. They must know that it is not the way to love a bird.


Injured leopard

MP Santosh also posted a viral video of a leopard lying on the middle of road, apparently injured by speeding vehicles, between Pune  and Pandharpur highway.  After seeing the injured leopard, other vehicle drivers carefully avoided hitting it further. By the time the forest officials rushed to the spot, the leopard moved away from there. They launched a search for it through drone cameras, but to of no avail. This is believed to have happened on September 4.

The site, which carried the video – Brut – said according to data from Wildlife Protection Society, as many as  430 animals in India between 2012 – 17, are victims of road accidents. This underscores the seriousness of our roads condition and the care we take for our valued animals. “It’s truly heartbreaking to witness this scene – a majestic leopard – injured and lying on the road after hit by a vehicle,”  Santosh posted on X.

“This serves as a stark reminder of the importance of wildlife conservation and responsible driving. Let’s be extra cautious when travelling through their habitats ensuring their safety and ours. Together, we can make a difference,” added Santosh.  We see reports of many elephants, deer and other wild animals being hit on the highways in nights by speeding vehicles. This can be stopped, if we show our will.
