These incidents are common in the area – India remains to loose some of its amazing wildlife species to human induced protection mechanisms that protect the garden surroundings / village communities from elephant attacks. Ignoring species like birds get caught up in these snares / protected wires and end up fatal.


Acknowledge: Thanks to Mr. Arun Kaul in sending the pictures.  Bird identification with help of Nikhil Devasar (Delhi bird Club) and Anish Andheria (Wildlife Conservation Trust).
