BRS Rajya Sabha MP J Santosh Kumar continued his Sunday Photography habit this Sunday, March 12, too and posted four pics of blue-grey songbirds. They are also called blue-gray gnatcatchers (will someone throw more light on this?). As per bird watchers, they originally belong to a species from North America, but now commonly seen (may be their subspecies) in India too.

We most appreciate Santosh for tweeting these pics amid hectic political activity a day before in Delhi. This shows his commitment to his green cause. These Sunday photography tweets are aimed at encouraging people, mostly, youth and students to protect nature and wildlife. Santosh, who founded Green India Challenge six years back uses his Nikon 850 camera to capture the birds.


Songbirds good for environment

Today’s birds in picture, blue-grey songbirds are not in the list of endangered species, but we need to protect them as they play a role in our ecological balance. About 16 cm in size and 6 grams in weight, these small birds are with slender, dark bills. They live on large leaves, eat insects and are known for building tiny nests. The sounds made by the birds led to call them songbirds.

Their presence in and around Hyderabad indicate that there is humidity and tropical conditions for their survival. The se birds, like any other of their species, are essential for ecological balancing in our environment. Youngsters must be encourage to take snaps of such birds, perched on trees. Observing birds, their sounds make our children befriend with our nature.
