"The Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the Ringnecked Parakeet, is a tropical parakeet species that is popular as a pet. This non-migrating species is one which has successfully adapted to living in disturbed habitats. As compared to all Psittacula (Afro-Asian Ringnecked Parakeet) species, the Rose-ringed Parakeet is sexually dimorphic. The adult male Sport a black neck-ring and pink nape-band while the hen and immature birds of both sexes either show no neck rings, or display shadow-like pale to dark grey neck-rings and light (lighter coloured than surroundings) nape-bands.In the wild, Rose-ringed Parakeets mostly feed on buds, fruits, vegetables, nuts, berries and seeds.They also breed during winter unlike most other South Asian birds. Parrots, also known as psittacines are birds of the roughly 372 species in 86 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes. They are found in most warm and tropical regions.
