Re: [birdsofbombay] Losing our bio-diversity
- I think we need to pay serious attention to the problem of
loss of bird bio-diversity.
I remember raising this question at a BNHS meeting on
vultures more than a year ago, and I have still to receive
an educated response.
I do not think it is only the vultures that are declining -
I think most (if not all) birds are affected. One particular
bird that I have noticed the absence of is the Dabchick - I
have not seen a single dabchick around Mumbai for the past 2
We need to look at the larger picture - loss of biodiversity
accompanied by decrease in numbers.
Which is why the bird count data of the 70s would be so
