Rose-Ringed Parakeets

A little distance from our room in Delhi (well, Surajkund in Haryana, actually) was a tree on the parakeets were having fun....I didn't have the "birding" camera with me, only my trusty S3...so these are what I got!

Here's one bird making a "trunk" call (non-Indian friends...long-distance calls in India were called "trunk" calls..in fact, the term STD-- in phone parlance -- doesn't mean that the phone is a communicable disease, it means Subscriber Trunk Dialling!)



Hello? I want to make a 'trunk' call!


And I thought I would document the female parakeet, which doesn't have the eponymous rose ring around her neck, but is just as beautiful nevertheless.

Such foozly shots can be passed off as "documentation" shots!



Rose-Ringed Parakeet, Surajkund281007


They ARE common birds, which have adapted very well to urban and semi-urban areas. I only wish that they didn't have such harsh voices!
