The rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as ring-necked parakeet (Fig. 1), distributed in tropical Africa and Asia, is adapted to living in different habitats enjoying 'least concern' status of the IUCN (Bird Life International, 2012). However, due to it's popularity as pet and unpopularity as crop foragers, it's population is becoming stumpy in some parts of the native range.

Abstract


The rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as ring-necked parakeet (Fig. 1), distributed in tropical Africa and Asia, is adapted to living in different habitats enjoying 'least concern' status of the IUCN (Bird Life International, 2012). However, due to it's popularity as pet and unpopularity as crop foragers, it's population is becoming stumpy in some parts of the native range.
