With much enervating summer heat, the birds in and around the city are suffering most. It is time for the citizen to take their win and save them from dying. Provide water in a plastic container in your balcony space or in your bed room window and help out the birds to quench their thirst and avoid dehydration. PAWS-Mumbai helpline is doing yeomen service to the cause of birds in the city. Make use of the dial help services and make sure that the birds did not suffer from dehydration any more this summer. If each and every citizen taken care of some 5 birds on a day to day basis, then the heat-wave deaths can be curtailed to the minimum. After all, the feathered birds are also just like human being and it is up to us not to destroy their nests or fly kites to cause damage to their living.
