As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Chennaiites on a drive to save bird habitats

It's that time of the year when city's bird lovers set out for long walks in the cool morning weather, carrying their binoculars and cameras.

Interestingly, these bird enthusiasts are also taking steps to spread awareness about conservation of bird habitats, inculcate interest among Chennaiites to identify different bird species in the city and also explain how we can avoid dwindling of bird species in Chennai. 

A bird enthusiast, Gayathree Krishna, claims that Chennai has a good range of habitats. "Guindy National Park and Theosophical Society are known for their forest habitats. Whereas, marshes are seen at Pallikaranai and seashore habitats are prominent at Muttukadu and Adyar Estuary," she says, "On a drive down the ECR, one will find rollers and bee eaters perching on wires."
