Delhi Rooftop: Rose-ringed Parakeet in flight

I am back from a short family trip to Delhi. Did not have much time to bird but did spend some time on my parent's rooftop. My rooftop list in this crowded over-built part of the city is now approaching 70! No wonder we like to call Delhi "the bird capital"!

The downside of being there during the monsoon season is that the light is very challenging - usually overcast in the best hours of the morning changing rapidly to harsh sunlight on days when the sun does break through.
