Dear Nature Lovers,

Greetings from oikos !
Monsoon at door steps now ! A season that gives new life to entire living forms !
This time, we have a commonly seen bird in gardens. This tiny, chirpy fellow is a delightful experience. It helps us by eating many insects on plants, so no need for pest control & harmful chemicals, have more birds in garden…
