Psittacula krameri, Halsbandsittich, Rose ringed parakeet The Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the Rose-ringnecked Parakeet, is a gregarious tropical parakeet species that is popular as a pet. Its scientific name commemorates the Austrian naturalist Wilhelm Heinrich Kramer.
This non-migrating species is one of few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in 'disturbed habitats', and in that way withstood the onslaught of urbanisation and deforestation. In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call. As is the case with all Psittacula spp. (Afro-Asian Ringnecked Parakeet species) ; the Rose-ringed Parakeets is sexually dimorphic where adult males sport pitch-black neck-rings & pink nape-bands while hens & immatures of both genders display no or shadow-like (pale to dark grey) neck-rings & light (lighter coloured than surroundings) nape-bands.Source:Wikipedia
