World Sparrow Day is an international initiative promoted and sponsored by the Nature Forever Society of India and the Eco-Sys Action Foundation of France. These two organizations recognize the declining populations, especially in big cities. They are also concerned about the negative impact of a changing environment on these birds. The goal of this special day is to raise public awareness about sparrows and celebrate the relationship between sparrows and humans.
Sparrows are a popular bird at your backyard bird feeder, especially in winter when food sources dwindle as winter progresses. Bird watchers are thrilled by their presence. Sparrows often visit bird feeders in waves. They crowd the bird feeder and the ground in search of high-energy seeds. A large population of sparrows can empty the seeds in your feeder in a single day.
