[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last few days of an official tour, I got a chance to visit an interior part of north Bengal, observed several new species of birds and butterflies, unfortunately due to rain I could not able to documented them properly. Here Iím presenting one of them, the Red-breasted Parakeet. This beautiful Parakeet is very common in this area but in the wild I saw it first time perching on a branch of a large tree.
The Red-breasted Parakeet (Psittacula alexandri) is among the more widespread species of the genus and is the species which has the most geographical variations. It is easily identified by the large reddish patch on its breast. An alternative name is the Moustached Parakeet depending on subspecies. Most of the subspecies are confined to small islands or a cluster of islands in Indonesia. One subspecies occurs in the Andaman Islands, and one subspecies occurs in continental Southeast Asia and partly extending to northeastern parts of South Asia along the foothills of the Himalayas. Some of the island races may be threatened by the wild bird trade. The nominate race, which occurs in Java, is close to extinction.
