I have just received an email to say it’s WORLD SPARROW DAY (20th March 2011).
World Sparrow Day helps raise public awareness about the decline of the house sparrow and throw light on the problems faced by the species in its daily fight for survival.
You can do your bit by making a note of the sparrows you see wherever you are in the world and submit the details on the Tree Sparrow sightings page.
Just note down the species and where exactly they were.
Happy bird spotting!
