The "Hamar Chirai Hamar Chinhari" Bird Festival held in January-February 2021 marked a significant step towards promoting bird conservation and raising public awareness about the Gidhwa-Parsada Bird Sanctuary. The three-day festival, organized in the villages of Gidhwa and Parsada, aimed to engage the local community and visitors in various activities centered around bird appreciation and ecological education.


  • The festival showcased a diverse range of activities designed to captivate participants and foster a deeper understanding of the sanctuary's avian inhabitants. Bird displays featuring local and migratory species allowed attendees to observe these magnificent creatures up close, igniting a sense of wonder and admiration for their beauty and diversity. Additionally, a bird awareness marathon encouraged people of all ages to actively participate and gain firsthand knowledge of the importance of bird conservation.
  • Bird sighting tours were organized during the festival, providing an opportunity for participants to explore the sanctuary's natural habitats and observe different bird species in their native environments. Such experiences not only offered moments of tranquility but also strengthened the connection between humans and the natural world, reinforcing the need for conservation efforts.
  • The festival also witnessed a momentous announcement made by the Honorable Chief Minister, declaring Gidhwa, Nagdha, Parsada, Amershahi, and Murkuta as an expanded bird sanctuary. This announcement signifies the government's commitment to preserving and enhancing the sanctuary's ecological significance, further solidifying its status as a vital habitat for birds.
  • By involving public participation in the "Hamar Chirai Hamar Chinhari" Bird Festival, the sanctuary's importance was effectively communicated to the local community and visitors. Creating awareness and appreciation for birds and their habitats helps instill a sense of responsibility towards conservation among the public, contributing to the long-term sustainability of the sanctuary.
  • With the government's support and the enthusiastic participation of people, the Gidhwa-Parsada Bird Sanctuary is poised to become an even more robust and thriving habitat for avian species. As efforts continue to promote bird conservation and ecotourism in the region, the sanctuary will not only safeguard its feathered inhabitants but also serve as a valuable educational and recreational destination for generations to come.
