Rose Ringed Parakeet (Female)

After a long morning trail the final day at Keoladeo Ghana, thought of resting in the open lawn nearby the canteen. As we kept our gears and got freshen up, we saw few parakeets on the nearby trees. For few minutes, we could manage to resist ourselves and enjoy them through our naked eyes. It has always been the case that we admired our subjects through our view finder – so such a change was always welcomed. But it was not that long when our hands missed our gears and then clicked few.. This one happens to be a Rose Ringed Parakeet (Female)..

The “Rose-ringed Parakeet”, also known as the “Ringnecked Parakeet”, is a gregarious tropical parakeet species that has an extremely large range.

This non-migrating species is one of few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in ‘disturbed habitats’, and in that way withstood the onslaught of urbanization and deforestation. In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call. Rose-ringed parakeets measure on average 40 cm (16 in) in length including the tail feathers. Their average single wing length is about 15–17.5 cm (5.9–6.9 in). The tail accounts for a large portion of their total length.

The Rose-ringed parakeet is sexually dimorphic. The adult male sports a red neck-ring and immature birds of both sexes either show no neck rings, or display shadow-like pale to dark grey neck rings.
