Veterinarians in an animal hospital in Ahmedabad, India say that every day in recent weeks, animal rescuers are bringing in dozens of birds that have dropped from the sky from dehydration and exhaustion.

Animal doctors at the trust-run hospital were seen feeding birds multi-vitamin tablets and injecting water into their mouths using syringes on Wednesday.
