Why hundreds of parrots visit this same terrace every day

Lakshmi Narayan Reddy's home in the southern Indian city of Visakhapatnam has become a popular spot for the city's ring-necked parakeets.

Hundreds of them flock to his terrace three time a day, where he sprinkles grains of rice for them to peck.

It's now become a daily routine and one that he has perfected over the last 14 years – much to the delight of his neighbours who often peek out of their windows and watch as the parrots gather on his terrace every day.
