At present, China is building ecology civilization and ecology agriculture. Many kinds of harmful chemical poisons have been abandoned from farmland. Now you could see more and more wild animals and birds re-appear in that man-made forest as well as in other fields.
In our village which inner side is almost empty, my new house is just at its center with many tall trees around and you could see two big magpie-nests hanging on the top of the branches.
You may say that there are as many magpies as sparrows in these days. I often see many of the birds fly down to my yard for food or water.---------
When I was little, fellow friends often use a bamboo-sieve to hunt sparrows：To stick up the sieve with a wooden stick with a long rope tied its lower end, scatter some singles of grain under and around the sieve.---------Later, the 'smart' birds would notice the food with their sharp eyes and fly down for ‘harvest’. When you see some of them get into the shadow of the ‘net’, you quickly pull the other end of the rope and the sieve would capsize some birds for your pleasure!
Recently I have posted a blog on such topic. Please have a look at it and leave your comment!
