Parakeets at Sian Tuan: 3. Activities on the roof

Parakeets at Sian Tuan: 1. The parakeets are flying in; 2. Gathering around coconut palms.

Male Rose-ringed Parakeet.

The external facades of the houses where favourite locations where the Rose-ringed Parakeets (Psittacula krameri) regularly land on. A juvenile or an adult was regularly spotted resting quietly near the opening into the attic of the house (below). It usually remained on the same spot for some time until a partner or whatever flew by, whereby it would fly off to join the former. Other parakeets were actively moving or flying about.

…or exploring the spaces under the tiles (see video below).
