They come all together when I spread grains for them and spread joy.
I have a soft corner for them as they are now not seen as often.
Through this artwork, I want to spread a message to save birds,  save sparrows. Nature with Sara sparrows Bookosmia
They are part of our nature’s balance and it’s beauty.
============================================================
Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy that heartfelt write up? How about some some cool facts about sparrows and myth busters, shared by Subhadra Devi, a passionate birder.
Cool Fact#1 : House sparrows are NOT going extinct
If you live in an urban area you might feel that sparrows have disappeared from the neighbourhood and if you are a child you might have never seen one  near your house. But it is not true that sparrows are going extinct. They have  been gradually disappearing from cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi,  Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai. Sparrows are seen in all other parts of the country in good numbers, so the bird is of ‘Low Conservation’ concern. A recently published report,’ State of India’s Birds’ states that the species has been ‘fairly stable’ overall, during the past 25 years and more.  According to the survey, popular theory that radiation from mobile towers is hurting the House Sparrow is not supported by any evidence.
Nature with Sara Sparrow stories for kids by kids Bookosmia
Cool Fact#2 : House sparrows are seen almost all over the world.
It is found throughout Northern Africa, Europe, the Americas and much of Asia and is almost certainly more abundant than humans.

Cool Fact#3: Domestic cats are one of the main predators of House sparrows.

If both sparrow parents die for some reason, the intensive begging sounds of the chicks often attract replacement parents which feed them until they can sustain themselves.

Cool Fact#1 : Butterflies Live on an All-Liquid Diet

While we have all heard of how much the hungry caterpillar eats, adult butterflies can only feed on liquids—usually nectar. Their mouthparts are modified to enable them to drink, but they can’t chew solids.

Big Butterfly Month Nature with Sara poem by kids Bookosmia

Cool Fact#2 : Butterflies Drink From Mud Puddles

A butterfly cannot live on sugar alone; it needs minerals, too. To supplement its diet of nectar, a butterfly will occasionally sip from mud puddles, which are rich in minerals and salts. This behavior is called puddling.

Once upon a time there were three butterflies sisters. One was yellow, one red, and one was white. Whole day they used to play and dance in my garden.

Nature with Sara Big Butterfly Month Bookosmia

One  day it started to rain, the butterfly sisters’ wings became wet. They decide to  go back home but the door was locked and no one was there at home. So they  had to stay out in the rain, and they became more and more wet.

Nature with Sara butterfly in rain stories for kids by kids by Bookosmia

One of the sisters decided to take help of red and yellow Tulips nearby and said, “Friend Tulip, will you open your flower cup and let us in till the rain is over?”

The Tulips answered, “The red and yellow butterflies may enter, because they  are like our colours, but the white one should not come in.”

Nature with Sara Butterfly Tulip stories for kids by kids Bookosmia

The red and yellow butterflies did not like the answer, so they all decided to stay out in the rain. It was raining harder and harder and the poor butterfly sisters started shivering because of the cold.

 

So they went to white Lily and said, “Lily, could you please open your bud a  little so that we can enter inside as it is raining heavily.

The Lily answered, “The white butterfly may come in, but not the red and  yellow as they are of not my colour. ”

The white butterfly said, “If you do not allow my red and yellow sisters inside, then I will stay out in the rain with them. ”

 

So they all stayed out in the rain.

 

But the sun who was behind the cloud heard it all, and he knew how the three sisters were together in spite of getting wet. So he pushed his face through  the clouds and chased away the rain. Soon it was bright everywhere.

He dried the wings of the three butterflies and warmed their bodies. The three sisters were very happy and started to dance. They forgot the pain and danced with flowers the whole day. They happily went back home and found the door  was wide open.

Good times or bad, the butterflies stayed together!

===============================================================

Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy that meaningful story? After that beautiful write up, how about some some cool facts.

Nature with Sara Big Butterfly Month stories for kids, by kids Bookosmia

Cool Fact#1 : Butterflies hide when it rains.

They usually go to the same places they do for the night. Some butterflies hide under large leaves, some crawl down into dense leaves or under rocks, and some just sit head down on grass stems or bushes with wings held tightly. If the rains are exceptionally hard or of long duration many of the butterflies become tattered or die.

Nature with Sara Big Butterfly Month stories for kids, by kids Bookosmia

Cool Fact#2 : Butterfly wings are delicate.

Butterfly and moth wings are made of thin layers of chitin, the same hardened protein that makes up their outside body. They are also covered with thousands of tiny scales that lend color to the wings. The wings are strengthened by a system of veins. The wings have to be strong enough to support the body in the air, but still flexible enough for flight movements.

Never ever let a bee sting
Or you will jump like a spring!

Nature with Sara activities for kids BookosmiaHey, your friend Sara here! I am amazed by the flow of your entries for our recently launched ‘Nature with Sara’ section, kicking off with birds that fascinate us.

Read with Sara Fascinating bird Owl poem by kid Bookosmia

Owls are fascinating creatures,
With the most amazing features,
They fly without making any noise,
And are just so full of poise.

They say owls are wise,
They even improvise,
This bird has great judgement,
And are abundant.

Owls’ necks are flexible,
And they are very respectable.
This bird is Goddess Laxmi’s steed,
How sweet!

Owls would make wonderful pets,
I really want one, let’s!
Flying in the night sky,
Owls are saying goodbye.
============================================================
Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy the poem? After that beautiful write up, how about some some cool facts about peacocks, acknowledged by Subhadra Devi, a passionate birder.
Cool Fact#1 : Owls are considered very intelligent. Is it true?  

Owls have very small brains proportionate to their body size, and they are less trainable than crows, hawks, parrots or pigeons. In fact, most owls can’t be trained to do simple tasks.

However, some types of owl do have complex behaviours. The little owl uses stashed meat to grow maggots for food in a way that other birds of prey don’t, for example. Its cousin, the burrowing owl, will take dung into its burrow and cultivate dung beetles.

Nature with Sara Owl Bird poem by kids Bookosmia
Cool Fact#2 : What enables Owl to be nocturnal creatures?

Owls have extremely good night vision. This is enabled by their large, tube-shaped eyes that contain many more rods than human eyes, which allow them to be more sensitive to light. Their irises widen to allow more light to reach their retina at night. Because the iris adjusts, owls can also see during the day (unlike other nocturnal animals that can only see well at night), but their vision is slightly blurry and they cannot see colors well.

Some more fun facts:
A group of owls is called a parliament.
Owls can turn their heads almost all the way around.

Unlike most birds, owls make virtually no noise when they fly.

Nature with Sara Owl Bird poem by kids Bookosmia

Owls swallow their prey whole and regurgitate the parts that can’t be digested as pellets. If you find a spot where owls roost, you can find these pellets below that spot. You can dissect these pellets to find what the owl had eaten.

‘Bird Friends’ by 8 year old Shifa Zahra Touseef from Lucknow

2-7 |8+ |

Nature with Sara activities for kids BookosmiaHey friends, Sara here!

Lock down doesnt mean locked in fully! The birds, plants, trees, wind et al are all there, waiting for us.

 

So in this beautiful section, I will share everything that kids write to me about  nature.

Read with Sara stories for kids by young writer Shifa Lucknow Bookosmia

Remember the phrase,’ birds of a feather, flock together?’ Today, 8 year old Shifa Zahra Touseef from Lucknow shares a beautiful story on a similar theme, followeded by some cool facts on actual bird behaviour.

 

==============================================================

Have you ever seen birds making friends with other birds?

Have you ever seen a bird rescue a bird ?

No? Well I have.

This story is quite unbelievable, but it is true. I was five and I regularly went to  the park. One day I noticed 2 birds sitting on a branch and singing. I had never seen birds singing together. As they finished, I started clapping happily. As a reward, I gave them breadcrumbs that were in my pocket.

 

After that, I went there daily. These two birds would sing and I would feed  them. Over time we became friends. In my neighborhood there was a  competition named ‘Best Bird’ Competition. It sounded silly to me.

Here is what was to happen in the contest-

‘You need to capture a beautiful bird. The owner of the best bird is the winner.’

Many people were trying to get my little friends. Poor things!

Finally my neighbor Mr. Glegg managed to catch one of my friends. The other one went free but it did not leave. It wanted to hurt Mr. Glegg so he would set its friend free.

 

The little bird failed. It looked at me for help. I nodded and smiled and went to  Mr. Glegg and said, “ Er… Mr. Glegg that bird is…. Er… my pet!”

Mr. Glegg thought for 5 minutes and guess what? He set the bird free!

The bird went to its friend when everybody went away and started to sing.

 

One week later I went to Dubai and stayed there for five years, before coming back. One day while I was sitting in the park, I noticed two beautiful birds  staring at me as if I were yummy food. Suddenly as a flash it came to me.

Who were they? The birds I had helped all those years ago?

I smiled at them.

They started singing my favorite tune.

***************************************The End***********************************

Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy that lovely story? And now its time for some cool facts about birds and their behaviour, shared by Subhadra Devi, a passionate birder.

Cool Fact#1: 

Do birds make friends with other birds?

A study shows that many species of birds are quite friendly with others of  their species and even other species.  Some types of chickadees and  titmouse have been known to let other birds know when they discover a well-stocked feeder, rather than keeping all the food to themselves.

Nature with Sara Birds activity for kids Bookosmia

Cool Fact#2: 

Do birds watch out for other birds?

Geese are flock birds but studying them will show that when everyone is  feeding, there will always be one or two with their heads up, watching for trouble.  These guard geese are watching over their friends while they eat and then will take their turn while someone else stands watch.

The bird that fascinates me is the King of all birds- Peacock .It is India’s National bird which brings pride to our nation because of its mesmerizing  beauty.

 

A peacock feather is one of Krishna’s important symbols,adorning his head.

Its feathers are also used in pooja.

Nature with Sara Peacock feather Bookosmia

 

Peacock fascinates me because…it has feathers that are simply divine. The  feathers of peacock are also very soft and colourful. When it rains they do a wonderful  rain dance. But still many times they are hunted for their feathers…which is bad.

They should also not be hunted because they are a big help to farmers.As they eat snakes and insects etc.
So we should SAVE PEACOCKS!  Which is the right thing to do.

 

********************************End******************************************

Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy the poem? After that beautiful write up, how about some some cool facts about peacocks, acknowledged by Subhadra Devi, a passionate birder. Since Nandini’s write up mainly focused on the  feathers, so will our facts 🙂

 

Cool Fact#1:

Nandini rightly spoke of  how peacocks are hunted for their feathers. While we all love the beautiful feathers that make this bird stand out, we must not look to buy or sell the feathers, which may lead hunters to hurt these birds.

Cool Fact #2

Peacocks can fly, even with their massive tail feathers, that can reach up to six feet long and make up about 60 percent of its body length. Despite these odd  proportions, the bird flies just fine, if not very far.

Nature with Sara Peacock Bookosmia

Cool Fact #3

What makes the peacock’s feathers so brilliant? Microscopic “crystal-like structures” that reflect different wavelengths of light depending on how they’re spaced, resulting in bright fluorescent colors. Hummingbirds and shimmering butterflies have mastered a similar visual effect on their own wings.

Read with Sara stories for kids by kids Pratham Mysore Bookosmia

Dont miss this beautiful coming together of a cuckoo bird, a child’s empathy and a wonderful lesson from his grandma.

 

 

================================================================

One day, when I was cycling on the road near my house, I saw a baby bird with a watchman. I recognized the watchman, he looks after a hostel in front of my house.
He called me and he told me that the baby bird is wounded and it is dying. I  asked him if I could take it to my house and give some water to it.
I love animals and birds so I quickly took it and put it in my cycle basket and  went to my house. I asked my grandparents to help me out to save the bird. I  put it in a small box and gave it food and water.
I then had to go attend my painting class. Throughout my painting class, I couldn’t stop thinking about the baby bird.
Read with Sara cuckoo story for kids by kids Pratham Mysore Bookosmia
After an hour, I came back running and asked my grandmother how the bird was doing. My grandmother told me that the baby bird was wounded, it tried to fly a few times but it fell down every time. I felt very bad for the baby bird.
My  grandmother also said never give up.
We kept the bird for a few more days and gave it food and water everyday. I  learnt that it was a baby cuckoo. On the fifth day, we suddenly noticed that the  bird was able to fly better. We let it out to fly and it flew away.. to its mother..  Hope that the baby bird is a big and strong bird today.
Please help birds and animals.
Key message- Never give up and please help the birds and animals.

Cool Fact#1:
Cuckoo bird and its eggs- 10 year old Pratham adorably hopes in his essay that the cuckoo bird grew strong and flew back to its mom. But here is some cool facts about the Cuckoo bird and how it lays its eggs-
There are many species of birds in the cuckoo family in India. Asian Koel is one of them.  Asian Koels are ‘brood parasites,’ a terms that refers to animals  which use other species to raise their chicks. There are birds, insects and even fish that are brood parasites. Asian Koels are seen using Crows (House crow and Large-billed Crow) nests for laying their eggs. These crows then feed and  bring up the Koel chick along with their own chicks.

Cool Fact#1:
‘The Peacock looked lovely like a queen,’ says Ayraa in the poem. How beautiful! But did you know that Peacocks are all male and considered more attractive than the female.

Earlier called Common peafowl, this bird’s name has been changed to Indian  peafowl to show the country of origin. The female and male Indian peafowls are usually called ‘peacocks’ and ‘peahens.’ 

The adult female is smaller than the adult male and has a shorter tail, an iridescent green neck, and browner plumage and lacks the sweeping train.

Cool Fact #2

The male Indian Peafowl is the one  we would see dancing.

The dance is by the male to attract females for mating.

 

Cool Fact #3

A lot of Indian peafowls have been transported to other places of the world for their beautiful plumage and these birds have established populations in places like the US, Hawaiian islands, South Africa, Japan, New Caledonia, New Zealand, and Australia.
