Vishwanath Hegga, a veterinary doctor based in Kalaburagi, Karnataka, boasts of a collection of 29 different species of birds from various parts of the world.

“I am a veterinary surgeon working with the state government. Now I am breeding parrots from 29 countries. I started with lovebirds which I got from New Zealand,” the veterinary doctor told news agency ANI.

It’s a work of passion and dedication for Mr Hegga who is training the birds at his home.

“We feed them with cerelac, imported from Brazil, four times a day. We have named the birds and they respond when we call them by their names. My entire family loves them,” he said.
Another advantage of keeping the birds at home, Dr Hegga feels is that his children’s communication has improved while trying to talk to the birds and he feels great to watch them grow together.
