The Joy of Birding After 6 Months!

Past months have been difficult for all of us due to COVID-19’s second wave. We at E.F.I had to stop all our volunteering activities. But now after nearly 6 months we had resumed our activities with the Birding Weekend Event. One might ask, why be joyous? We are elated because the birding happened at the Sathangadu Lake!

This once polluted lake is now thriving with birds and other organisms. The lake now hosts various birds’ nests and is also a hunting ground for Wetland birds.
