Among the hustle and bustle of Chennai in southern India, 62-year-old Sekar – known as ‘India’s Birdman’ – rises at 4 am to prepare the feed for his feathered friends.

A BIG-HEARTED bird lover has been feeding thousands of wild parakeets twice a day for 10 years – from the comfort of his own home.

The enthusiast ornithologist, who works as a camera technician, prepares thick rows of rice on planks of wood on his roof terrace.

Up to 4,000 parakeets a day then brighten up the sprawling streets of Chennai in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, as they flock to Sekar’s home.
