Note from compilor: "The status given is my assessment of the current status and the recent maxima are from my notes over the past two years. Since we can readily update on the website I believe it is
important that what is posted is as close to the current status as we can gauge. I have relied heavily on the Kalpavriksh list (data to 1994) and Usha Ganguli's Birds of Delhi (data to 1971) for past records as well as a few other sources" ~ Bill Harvey, May 2003"
