[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The rose-ringed parakeet, also known as the ring-necked parakeet, is a gregarious tropical Afro-Asian parakeet species that has an extremely large range.

The rose-ringed parakeet is sexually dimorphic. The adult male sports a red or black neck-ring and the hen and immature birds of both sexes either show no neck rings, or display shadow-like pale to dark grey neck rings. Indian rose-ringed parakeets measure on average 40 cm in length including the tail feathers, a large portion of their total length. Their average single wing length is about 1517.5 cm. In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call and a distinctive green colour. It is herbivorous and non-migrating.

Hi George,a beautiful decentralized composition,but not the best pic of your gallery,for me a bit oversaturated and dark,no problem,nobody is perfect and i'm the first..ehehe...have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

George, it is a delightful portrait of a Rose-ringed Parakeet female, but the ring around its neck is not visible in your picture. Is it that only the males of the species have it?
We have plenty of these Parakeets here in India and I haven't seen one without a ring.

Hello George - Beautiful atmosphere. Like interplay of light and shade here. Thanks for sharing. Regards and have a nice day - Srikumar

Ciao George, lovely bird in nice pose, fantastic colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
