|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
