The gardens of the Theosophical Society in Chennai, India, are a pleasant and easy place to take a bird-walk in an otherwise hectic city. Birds include Orange-headed Thrush, Ashy Minivet, Yellow-billed Babbler and Black-rumped Flameback. Another highlight is a 400 year old Banyan Tree. Ask at the entrance whether cameras can be used and perhaps pay a small fee. The gardens are easily reached by taxi.
Vernal Hanging Parrot Loriculus vernalis is a tiny (just 14cm long) agile, little parrot found in parts of India and a few other places in SE Asia. This one, living up to its name, photographed on South Andaman Island in November 2012 (Gerard Gorman).
Before joining any wildlife watching or birding tour, wherever in the world, try to establish if the travel company you are considering booking with operates in an environmentally friendly, responsible manner.
