Here’s another session of birding from my favourite location, Coorg Wilderness Resort. This time around I caught a flock of Malabar Parakeet that settled onto a tree full of pods that are known for their bitter seeds. I don’t know what’s with Malabar Parakeets and their fascination for these utterly bitter seeds. I had a field day with these birds giving a demonstration of how to choose the perfect pods and skilfully spilt them open and feed on the seeds.

After the feeding frenzy, it was some quality family time for our Malabar Parakeet and he found his partner in one of the topmost perches and they stuck around for a while before flying off to into the Coorg Wilderness.
