|Rose-ringed Parakeet Psittacula krameri|
The second post of the same bird - different POV.
The Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) is a parrot which breeds in north and central Africa, and tropical Asia across to southern China.
It has been introduced elsewhere, and there is an established feral population in southern England and a number of other European cities. There are also apparently stable populations in the USA in Florida and California. It is a resident species which does not migrate.
It is a bird of woodland and cultivation. It nests in holes in trees, laying 2-6 white eggs.
This is a 40cm long green parrot, of which the long tail accounts for more than half the length. It looks long winged and very slender in flight. The female is all green with a red bill, but the male additionally has a small black bib and a black and pink neck ring.
This is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call.
This bird was first described and named by Giovanni Antonio Scopoli in 1769, naming it for the Austrian naturalist Wilhelm Heinrich Kramer.
Taken handheld through the wire of my avery at home. It is one of a few that I have. Great charactors all of them!
Cropped a little, adjusted contrast and brightness a little, then ran the high pass filter and resized for the site. Finally rerun high pass to produce this post - thanks for the tip Miles!
All crits welcomed. Thanks. Tim

Is it a pet?
This is a OK picture of a Rose-ringed Parakeet with partial details of the bird. It looks the bird is inside a cage with blurred background. I wish you had taken this in natural surroundings highlighted. The bird in this farme is with ruffed feathers, gives an impression as if it is suffering from Parrot Fever.Refer website : http://www.healthatoz.com/healthatoz/Atoz/common/standard/transform.jsp?requestURI=/healthatoz/Atoz/ency/parrot_fever.jsp
