Remarks :I visited the old site where easily 45 Green Avadavat were seen since the year 2004 by me. Some construction was seen there which was not there before. I failed to find even a single bird in Oriya Village. I could see two birds near Lal Mandir some 700 metres away from Oriya Village. Six birds were seen at the other location some 10 km away from Oriya Village. - JT
