Rose-ringed Parakeet

A male parakeet

These lovely birds with gorgeous green plumage land on my Caesalpinia plant in the morning and evening. They spend a lot of time eating the beans; looks like their favourite food!

The rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri) is sexually dimorphic. The adult male sports a red or black neck ring and the female show no neck rings or a very faded ring.

They have adapted well to the environmental changes of deforestation and urbanization and are considered the least threatened.

Here are a few of their pictures, enjoying on my Caesalpinia, with their characteristic screeching sounds.

  1. It must take you a lot of patience to get their perfect pictures when they are so busy at work! You do magic with your lenses, Indira! My son enjoys seeing your captures!
    It has been a pleasure seeing the captures on your third eye and reading about the info you provide for our reference. Keep them coming!
    Wishing you and your family all joy and happiness!
