My name is Sumathi. I am from Coimbatore district. I am fond of birds and have always been curious about them. When we were kids, I remember there were a lot of sparrows near our homes. I don’t see as many anymore and wondered why. I asked Srinivasan Services Trust (SST) staff member about Sparrow Boxes and if these could help bring back the birds. The next day they fixed a box at home! Every day, I checked to see if there was a sparrow in my box and one month later, there it was! I can’t tell you how happy and excited I am! My daughter and I spend our free time watching and caring for the sparrow. She’s told all our neighbours about it. Now everyone is contributing to creating a more sparrow-friendly environment. This is my way of giving back to these birds that bring me such joy.
