Rose Ringed Parakeet

Psittacula krameri


Colourful and noisy 'parrot' ....... parakeet actually, there are no parrots in India. The male has the ring around his neck, females look the same but do not have a ring. Both sexes share in parenting - personally observed!


Urban areas of peninsular India where their food habits have adapted from fruits and berries to grain, chapathies, rice and other food that humans eat!


This parakeet and his extended family sit on a pole outside my bedroom window in the city of Bombay/Mumbai!
