Responsible attitude to birds

A bird’s nest is a place where birds lay and incubate their own, and sometimes others’ eggs, and raise their squeakers. The birds have different shapes and sizes. They’re all a real masterpiece. Most birds build the nests in the spring: some species build a new nest, others repair last year’s or occupy ready-made artificial nests prepared by humans.

Experts from the IERS continue to teach children to make nesting structures for birds. On March 23, the Transcarpathian Regional Library for Children and Youth hosted a workshop for children of IDPs. First, Ruslana Dzhahman told the children about the sedentary and migratory birds of Uzhgorod. The sedentary birds are sparrows, great tit, blue pigeons, turtle doves, nuthatches, woodpeckers, and many others. Migratory birds are those that fly away to warmer regions for the winter: swallows, starlings, redstarts, storks, wagtails, etc. They are about to return home, and for now, we are making a house for the little great tit. The children set to work responsibly and, under the direction of Bilanych Mychail, quickly built a house and watched an informative video of a little bird building a nest in artificial houses.

The event was held in cooperation with the Interreligious and Civil Environmental Forum of Eastern Europe (IRCEF, led by Alexander Bokotei) with the support of the German Nature Conservation Union (NABU Bundesverband, NABU International, project coordinator Ivan Tymofeiev).
