ringed parakeet

These Indian rose-ringed parakeets returned to their roosting and nesting hole high up in a tree in India’s Keoladeo national park, only to find that a Bengal monitor lizard had taken up residence. The birds immediately set about trying to evict the squatter. They bit the monitor lizard’s tail, hanging on for a couple of seconds at a time, until it retreated into the hole. They would then harass it when it tried to come out to bask. This went on for two days. Photograph: Ganesh H. Shankar

I dunno why I drew this, but I always imagined that @therealjacksepticeye and @wiishu would have like a pet bird/birds. and I couldn’t really choose which kinda bird to draw so, I drew (from top right to top left) a cockatoo, cockatiel, parakeet,ring-neck parrot, zebra finch, and a love bird. I am not really sure if they would want a bird, but i’d think i’d be pretty cool.

hope you all have a good night. :)
