Bird Family :Psittacidae - Parrots, Parakeets, Lories, Lorikeets, Cockatoos, Corellas, Guaiabero & Racquet-tails
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :With female Rose-ringed Parakeet Psittacula krameri. Saw them together and thought it makes for an interesting side-by-side comparison of the sizes.

The female Rose-ringed and the male Plum-headed are together for just the fruits. I don't think there was an sort of inter-species triangle going on here. There were two female Plum-headeds in the tree as well and the male was with them. - VT
