These days it is freezing, and birds too are staying close to their nests excepting when they look for food. We watched it for a few days and realized that we could do something to help. We placed two utensils on a raised platform in front of our home, one each for grains and water. In no time a few birds came, and over the next few more days their numbers kept increasing. And now birds of all sizes flock there to take their fill. It is a beautiful sight to see.
Seeing how easy it was, some more neighbors did the same. Seeing the actions of my neighbors and the chirping birds make for some highly satisfying moments of my life.
