During last one month, arrival of thousands of parrots in Khejurband area of Maibang Sub- Division in Dima Hasao district has baffled the people of this area in particular.
The people of Kalachand and Khejurbandh area are witnessing the strange phenomenon of birds, coming from unknown places in this particular area where there is forest plantation and stay whole night and again in morning they fly away in same way. Jatinga is also famous for birds’ phenomenon where several varieties of birds come during a specific time under some specific conditions, but here, this phenomenon is different from Jatinga, here only one species of birds are coming. The peculiarity of this phenomenon is that not a single bird destroys any jhum products, the villagers opined.
The people of Dima Hasao consider this phenomenon as good sign. They say during last two year, the situation in Dima Hasao, otherwise troubled area is returning to normalcy. Now the songs of birds are being heard instead of the sounds of bullets in the district.
Meanwhile the forest department of Dima Hasao has taken all possible steps to protect these innocents winged guests of the district. Sri Bikash Brahma, Chief Conservator of Forest, Dima Hasao has instructed all the concerned officials to study the behavior of these birds and arrange adequate vigil for these birds so that they are not disturbed.
