Andhra Pradesh – Rose-Ringed Parakeet

Rose-Ringed Parakeet

Common Name: Rose Ringed Parakeet

Local Name: Rama Chiluka

Scientific Name: Psittacula krameri (Scopoli, 1769)

Description: The rose-ringed parakeet, also known as the ring-necked parakeet, is a medium-sized parrot that exhibits sexual dimorphism. The neck rings of immature birds of both sexes are either shadow-like, light to dark grey, or absent altogether. The adult male bird wears a red and black neck ring. Their green color is characteristic for both sexes, and they have a long, graduated blue tail and a robust, hooked red beak.  Fruits, nuts, berries, buds, seeds, cereal grains, pigeon peas, and vegetables are typically the foods that rose-ringed parakeets eat.

Threats include invasive species competition, habitat damage, poaching, and trapping for the pet trade.
