Nature Block: Flora and Fauna of Kemmannu (Thonse)  by Aaron Ambrose D’Souza

Udupi/Kemmannu, July 17, 2017:
How much do you know about your home and by home I mean the endless green surrounding that building made up of bricks? Kemmannu is not just home to us humans but to plenty of flora and fauna and we’re sure you don’t know half of them. But what’s the use of knowing all this you ask. Well other than learning about sheer awesomeness of nature, you can learn what plants are edible, how can they be used, how to grow or take care of them, impress the guest of yours by pointing at a bird or Butterfly and naming it.

Nature is not only beautiful it sustains us. So we better should learn how to sustain it as well with that in mind we welcome you to Red Soil Nature(or whatever) , follow us on .....

Bird watching as a hobby Article by Aaron Ambrose D’Souza

Bird watching is probably one of the least expensive and easy hobbies out there unless you shell out tons of money on high end binoculars. You don’t have to worry about those if you are just starting up though all you need to start up is patience. Well if you want to do bird watching binoculars are recommended but here in Kemmanu we have quite a few of those fearless birds which straight up come right next to you but if you’re determined then get a pair of binoculars. Taking pictures though that’s little hard if all you have is your phone camera by no means is it impossible so do your best. There are lots of local birds around here and we get visitors from all over the world so it’s not like you’ll run out of material any time soon. So if you like birds it’s not a bad idea to invest in a decent camera.

Looking at birds and taking pictures is one thing identifying them is another. Identifying birds is part of the fun too. There are multiple ways to identify birds identifying birds by sight is just one of those ways. Another way is to do so by listening to their calls it is slightly harder but I’m pretty sure anyone in Kemmanu can identify that noisy and colourful national bird of ours by its call alone. Other ways include observing their nests and fallen feathers but those are kind of hard to do. It’s better for amateurs like us to stick to sight and hearing. To help with identifying birds our state government has even made a catalogue listing the birds along with the pictures you can access the site through this link.

I personally started bird watching with the help of a book by Salim Ali so I’m going to recommend getting a book written by him since he was pretty much the best ornithologist in India when he was alive but since his books are pretty old so if you are ready to spend a couple of minutes on the internet you’ll find a lot more resources to help you identify birds. This year is a pretty cool year to start bird watching it being Salim Ali’s thirtieth death anniversary so let’s have some fun bird watching in respect of the “Bird Man of India”. I am sure you will enjoy it if you try.
