Photographer's Note

This is my 100th post in TE.. I'm dedicating this picture for all TE friends..
This is a Rose Ringed Parakeet.. This shot was taken in Bongaon(A town near Kolkata). his Rose Ringed Parakeet was posing in a colorful(full of flower)Butea monosperma tree.
The Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the Ring-necked Parakeet, is a gregarious tropical Afro-Asian parakeet species that has an extremely large range. Since the trend of the population appears to be increasing, the species has been evaluated as Least Concern by IUCN in 2009.
Rose-ringed parakeets are popular as pets. Its scientific name commemorates the Austrian naturalist Wilhelm Heinrich Kramer.
This non-migrating species is one of few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in 'disturbed habitats', and in that way withstood the onslaught of urbanisation and deforestation. In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call.
