Our organisation is motivating people to keep food and water for birds and I have kept few pots on floor and have hanged few of them on various places so that all types of birds could get water easily.
I saw a common parakeet trying to drink water from one of the pots hanging on the branch of. I could see it assessing wether it will be safe for it to sit on pot. Then s/he decided to sip water without sitting on the pot. It was really interesting to watch its acrobatics. It will not be wrong to say that it was a parakeets day.

In the evening time we were sitting out in our lawn. It was getting dark and things were becoming invisible. I saw a white cotton type thing lying on floor at a distance of 4-5 meter.I thought it is a polythene o a cloth.
I asked that person to catch it and check what he problem is. There was a wound under its wing . On of its leg was also hurt. We applied ointment on its wound and called staff from Madhav National park so that it can be given proper treatment and a safe place to live till it is fine to touch the sky again.
Then someone came to my ask and asked me if that duck is our pet. I was surprised on his question. I went there and saw that it was a little cattle Egret.lying still even when i reached there. My pet dog snowy also followed me, seeing dog it any how flew and sat on the hedge.It was really difficult for it to stay there.
