During peak summer in Tirunelveli, a village known for its rich history and biodiversity, Thidiyur, was discovered to be a haven for painted storks. Hundreds of these birds nest in various trees, protected by the villagers who show a strong commitment to their conservation. Despite challenges like power lines and waste management, the villagers’ efforts to safeguard the storks are commendable. Thidiyur’s harmonious coexistence with these birds highlights the village’s unique cultural and natural¬†heritage.
