4. Flying into trouble: Harriers decline as grasslands disappear Harrier birds, a migratory raptor species that regularly visits vast swathes of India, are declining. This may foretell lurking dangers to the country's grasslands. India has one of the largest roosting sites in the world for Pallid Harriers and Montagu's Harriers. Pallid Harrier is listed on Red list of IUCN -Near Threatened.
The gravest concern is the loss of grasslands, either to urbanisation or to agriculture. In February-March, peak season for the arrival of the birds, farmlands are burnt or over-grazed. Excessiveuse of pesticides in farms in and around the roosting sites couldalso be a reason for the lowered population counts -
