Few birds in Jahangirnagar University Campus, Savar

Every winter huge gathering of migratory birds are cited at different streams and lakes in the country. In Dhaka, besides the lakes of Dhaka Zoo at Mirpur, the three lakes of Jahangir Nagar University campus, Savar are a popular place for public viewing of guest birds. Birds arrive in the campus lakes from November and remain until March. This year till to date, the number of guest birds are only few. In fact their numbers were dwindling since last few years. It is said that large scale felling of trees in the campus, new construction, over-fishing of the lakes and spraying of insecticides have caused uncongenial environment and habitat for the migratory birds- the reason behind the decline of birds.
