Rose-ringed Parakeet

Psittacula krameri

Description:

English Name: - Rose-ringed Parakeet This photo was taken at our next door land, Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. Couple of parrots were building a nest in a coconut tree.

Habitat:

All zones of Sri Lanka

Notes:

The parrots found in Sri Lanka are mostly green in colour. This helps them to blend with the leaves of the trees in which they move about. Parrots are fairly stout birds with hooked beaks. Parrots feed on grain, nuts, buds of flowers nectar from flowers and fruit. Most species of parrots move about in flocks and are very noisy in flight and also as they go about looking for food.
