In an earlier post on Red-breasted Parakeet (Psittacula alexandri), Lee Chiu San commented:
“This species is popular in aviculture because it is not fussy about food. Our local population is not native, but is descended from escaped and released pets. They are seasonally plentiful in various parts of Singapore. Around my house, they come around when the rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum) (above) and chiku (Manilkara zapota) (below) trees are fruiting, and help themselves.”

Note: These two common fruit trees add to the list of food plants that the Red-breasted Parakeet feeds on – see BESG’s Plant-Bird Relationship’s List of Plants and List of Birds.
