With the slogan 'Let's be friends with the birds,' a total of 20 bird lovers have tied earthen pitchers in the trees for the purpose of protecting the birds on Friday morning in the municipal area of Rajbari district. 

Syed Mahmud Tasfiq Selehin Papun, a member of the bird lovers group, said, “Once a bird's nest was destroyed in a storm while my mother asked me to repair the nest. Since then my love for bird started to grow. Due to various natural calamities the nests are generally broken while many birds became nest-less as a result of deforestation. For these reasons, I have taken the initiative to provide safe shelters to the birds in which 20 more bird lovers have stood by to implement this initiative."

He said, "We have tied hundreds of earthen pitchers on several trees near Shaheed Khushi Railway ground in Rajbari district town by our own initiative with saving money for family expenses. If this initiative is successful, thousands of pitchers will be placed in different areas of Rajbari city in future."

With the others former district education officer Syed Siddiqur Rahman praised with saying it was undoubtedly a good initiative. This will increase the migration of birds in urban areas.
