Photographer : © Vijayendra Desai
Location :Surat, Gujarat, India
Date : 5 March 2014
English synonyms:Ring-necked Parakeet, Ringnecked Parakeet, Green Long-tailed Parakeet, Green Parakeet, Long-tailed Parakeet, Northern Rose-ringed Parakeet (borealis)
Bird Family :Psittacidae - Parrots, parakeets, lories, lorikeets, cockatoos, corellas, guaiabero & racquet-tails
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :It seems to be a double mutation (lack of yellow psittacin and dilution of melanin). Easily bred in captivity but in the wild (almost) impossible. However, this is not the first example I've seen in the wild (I do not believe they are all escapes). - Hein van Grouw
