My daily dose of nature's tweets

When we moved from crowded Delhi to suburban Gurgaon, we were looking forward to some peace and quiet. The new house was everything we longed for. But quiet, it certainly was not. Our balconies were host to a huge variety of birds of all shapes, sizes and colours. We have photographed at least 20 unique birds. The 12 parrots in the crack in the building next to us have been the subject of numerous videos and photographs. Our crowning glory was when a peacock flew into our balcony on the second floor and called loudly on my son's ninth birthday.

Today the city is being rapidly urbanised. But I am hoping to capture on film the joys of nature's bounty which has been ours to enjoy for the last six years.
