Rose-ringed Parakeet - Psittacula krameri

Also known as Ring-necked Parakeet, Psittacula krameri (Psittacidae) is a mainly green parrot with a red bill and a long, tapered tail. This is the Old World’s most widely distributed parrot, occurring in northern Africa north of the moist forest zone as well as across much of southern Asia.

These parrots are highly gregarious, especially outside the breeding season, sometimes forming flocks of several thousand birds. They roost communally, often with crows, mynas, or other parrots.

The Rose-ringed Parakeet is a gregarious tropical Afro-Asian parakeet species that has an extremely large range. Since the trend of the population appears to be increasing, the species has been evaluated as Least Concern by IUCN in 2009.

Rose-ringed parakeets are popular as pets. Both males and females have the ability to mimic human speech.

This non-migrating bird is one of the few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in ‘disturbed habitats’,allowing them to withstand the onslaught of urbanization and deforestation.  Source
