World Sparrow Day

World Sparrow Day is held each 20th of March to draw attention to the mysterious decline in house sparrow populations - once one of the most common species of bird in both rural and urban environments. Though no specific reason for its decline has been determined, it is believed to be due to a combination of habitat loss, reduced insects as food source, and even the increasing microwave pollution from mobile phone towers.

Celebrate the day by enjoying the following collection of artwork by AFC members. Many are for sale with a portion of proceeds pledged to conservation.
