India’s "Birdman" Cares for 4,000 Exotic Green Parakeets

10-12-2016

(Worldkings) Sekar, of Chennai, India, feeds up to 4000 wild parakeets right outside his home each and every day.

62-year-old Sekar wakes up at around 4am to cook pots of rice for his pet birds–his 4,000 pet birds, to be exact. Ten years ago, after a tsunami struck the the city of Chennai, India, the camera repairman noticed two green parakeets perched on his back porch. They’d been displaced by the natural disaster and Sekar decided to give them a loving home.

After some time passed, the man’s new pets nested and started a family. Then, after even more time passed, this feathered family grew drastically to include about 4,000 birds. Sekar now spends 40% of his income to purchase their food, which adds up to an impressive amount of rice. After cooking their two daily meals, the kindhearted man serves his exotic birds on the roof of his home. It’s no wonder why locals kindly refer to Sekar as “birdman.”
