Birds are barometers

Birds can be called barometers of nature around us. The four pics he tweeted today are of different species and different places. A couple of purple wood pigeons, commonly sighted in India are special – as they require protection from us. Thy mostly thrive on tree foliage and insects, said an birdwatcher from Hyderabad. Pics of parrots, black and white Pied India Myna tell us varied flora around us.
