Rose-ringed Parrot

The Psittacula krameri manillensis (scientific name) or rose-ringed parrot is native to the Indian sub-continent, found across India and Pakistan. 16 inches in length, including the tail, this bird is unmistakable on account of its bright green plumage and rose-coloured ring around the neck of the male. The female has no ring around her neck, just over all green plumage, with the underparts being a bit lighter than the top. The feet are grey and the beak is bright red in colour. Its diet consists of fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and berries. While there can be many clutches by a single female in one breeding season, the average clutch consists of 3-6 eggs which are incubated for 23-24 days. Its IUCN listing is the LEAST CONCERN.
