Five Nature lovers  including Journalist Sudhir Mishra, Sushant Dash,(,devlopment sector) Arindam Parischha,Subhranshu Mishra,wildlife enthusiast ,and Sonu ,Photographer,  undertook a forest walk onSunday morning  in the forest near Bolangir town and sighted the Green vine snake,besides the pug mark of  fishing cat, wild boar,Mongoose.  

The Green vine snake is slightly venomous snake and highly camouflage and it lives in tree.It mainly prey on lizard and insects and lives in.tree and has the same colour of green leaves.says Arindam Parischha,

a Lecture on Zoology here.Ten years ago this snake was sighted. Todays sighting is a good sign of Biodiversity of this forest ,Parischha says further. 
However much to the surprise,the number of birds namely  Flycatcher,Indian Pitta and others were found in less number. Last year we had noticed around 100 pairs of Indian paradise  flycatcher bird.However this year we have observed only a few.

We believed this has happened due to the unwanted human activity like picnic 
in that area last year which polluted the area with liquor bottles, plastic and others,says Parischha further.


The team also spotted a Sikhada which is an insects comes out in the night just before the monsoon and climb to nearest trees and produce a sound.After climbing at he tree from earth, it starts its further life says Subhranshu ,a wildlife lover

Every year a large number of biodiversity is lost in forest fire and steps should be prevent it to check further loss of biodiversity of this area,says SushantDash.
