Remarks :In September, I was able to spend a few hours at my favourite spot in India - the rooftop of my parent's apartment in urban, crowded West Delhi (Paschim Vihar). The quality and variety of birds possible from the rooftop continues to amaze me (fingers crossed). Plum-headed, Rose-ringed and Alexandrine Parakeets can all be seen and photographed there. - VT
