[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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.

Hi Biswarup,

A super portrait of the Parakeet. The exposure is just perfect against the background. Wish could have seen the entire length of the tail.

Nice job!

Hello Biswarup,
A lovely parakeet displaying gorgeous contrasting colors. Very sharp focus allowing us to view it in fine detail. The missing tail would have been nice to include, but this is still a lovely presentation despite of it. Great eye contact!!

Never seen this kind of Parakeet ever before, Biswarup.
Wonderful capture.
I wonder if there is more of its tail you might have kept out of the frame.
