Bird Festive Season

Season means many different things to many people. Some prefer monsoon for their crops to grow, while others look for summer for their business to flourish. And there are people waiting for a new season to welcome visiting birds. In fact, the avian visitors remind people of beginning of a new season.

The migratory birds’ spectacular flight reminds farmers to plant new crops in their field. Thus the saying in Nepali: "Karyang kurung aayo, kakro pharsi ropa" or, Here come cranes, plant cucumber and pumpkin in your nursery-lane.
