  1. Are you sure this is a Layard's Parakeet and not a female rose-ringed parakeet? I don't see any bluish-grey on the head.

    1. I can confirm, that's a rose-ringed, not Layard's.
      See my (crappy) photo.

The rose-ringed parakeet is a medium-sized parrot in the genus Psittacula, of the family Psittacidae. It has disjunct native ranges in Africa and the Indian Subcontinent, and is now introduced into many other parts of the world where feral populations have established themselves and are bred for the exotic pet trade.
