Indian Ring Necked (IRN) Parakeet- is a colorful and swift bird. They are one of the species that have survived deforestations and live in disturbed habitat. They are noisy birds.
Also known as Rose Ringed Parakeets, these birds are popular as pets because they have the ability to mimic human speech. It seems ancient Greeks kept IRN as pets. They also show emotions like humans and adjust to family life. (info from Wiki).
I took this picture in Bilikal Reserve Forest near Hampi. It is lesser known birder's paradise. You will see more bird pictures from this place in coming posts.
