A Story of India's Beautiful Birds

Dear Ornithologists

I would like to inform you about the large flock of Sarus Crane (Grus antigone) at Kasrawal Village of Sub-division of Mohammadi of kheri district. We visited this area regularly in month of Feb-march 2006, here We seen 55-60 Sarus at village pond locally called Jhhaber. There are large wetland with small dotted wetlands and a Government canal beside the village. But In second week of March these wetlands were shrinking due to summer heat. I seen these birds regularly in month of Feb 2006 but In march birds were not regularly visited in this village in the absence of water.Hunting is the main problem here, I heard to the peoples of this village that the army persons of Shahjahapur Cant were also involve in poaching of Sarus and a village Nayagaon Jat is situated near this birds’ habitat, few Castes of this village are also involve in Poaching.Villagers have no any information about wildlife conservation and their important due to lack of awareness programme by NGOs and Forest Department, I’ll request to all of you regarding protection of wildlife in Agricultural areas.
Thanking you
With Regards
