Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) is an introduced species In the 1980s it was common, no so now.
Karen Goh’s observation of the Rose-ringed Parakeet eating the fruit of Mango (Mangifera indica) is an important food record. In the Handbook of the Birds of the World (Collar, 1997), no information is given under Food and Feeding. Neither is there any mention in Juniper & Parr (2003).
This post is a cooperative effort between Birds, Insects N Creatures Of Asia and BESG to bring the study of birds and their behavior through photography and videography to a wider audience.
