Bird brained!
Illogical killing of migratory birds
16/11/2006

Among the visitors streaming into the country without the mandatory visa, included are the migratory birds that flock in thousands to different regions of the country. Crisscrossing thousands of miles to escape the harsh winter of the icy Northern hemisphere, they, more or less, reflect the environmental stability quotient of the destination regions.

In India, out of 2,000 species and sub-species, about 350 are considered as extralimital migrants. They are mostly from Central Asia and Siberia. As almost the whole of India is visited by one species or the other of the clan of migratory birds, their number or disappearance has signified the definite direct or indirect human intervention.

In this light, the much touted God’s own country, that is Kerala, has been more than a rude host to these honoured guests. Because of the habitat destruction, pollution and poaching, many migratory birds are on the verge of extinction in the state. Illegal killing of birds for meat has been on high. Save Silent Valley, Periyar Tiger Reserves, and few others, rest, all the other areas have more or less disappeared from the state. And now, it is the same sorry state-of-affair in other parts of. Unless laws and regulations are vociferously promoted to save such aviary migration, birds of the many flocks might never fly together again...
