Birds in Neighbourhood - 19

I am the few of the fortunate who occasionally get to see few birds of different variety around my house in Bangalore. I have captured few of them in my camera and here they are. One such beautiful bird is Rose-ringed Parakeet.  


It is a one of the unique spices of bird that have successfully withstood the onslaught of urbanization and deforestation.



The average size of the bird is 40 cm in length. The bird is green in color and adult birds sports a red neck-ring. This is a noisy bird with an unmistakable squawking. It is herbivorous and non-migrating.
