NTG Supports Winter Feeding of Songbirds Campaign „Grain of Love”

Hundreds of Bulgarians took part in the campaign of the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB) for the winter feeding of songbirds Grain of Love. Many people write they have put their own bird feeders in front of residential blocks or in parks.

BSPB organizes trainings and workshops for students and children on making bird feeders. Nearly 90 percent of the finances for the purchase of seeds to maintain the feeders throughout the country have already been collected. It goes through the platform "For Bulgaria", where anyone can donate as much as he wants: http://zabulgaria.org/

Many beautiful birds live around us, but normally we don't see them due to our busy schedules. Great Tit, Blue Tit, Nuthatch, sparrows, robins, finches, jays and many other birds do not migrate south and stay with us during the winter period. We can help them survive in the winter providing them additional food. It is very simple to make your own bird feeder from an old plastic bottle and fill it with raw sunflower seeds, BSPB calls.

New Thracian Gold supports this BSPB initiative strongly and hopes everybody joins it. Please, invite the birds to your feeding site and you will be rewarded with beautiful observations. The ornithological richness of the Eastern Rhodopes, where NTG actively works, makes this region a paradise for birdwatchers and photographers. Almost three hundred bird species occur here, which is about 70% of Bulgarias total.
