ಮಲೆಗಿಳಿ/Blue-winged parakeet - Male / | Kollamogaru, Sullia | 03Sep16

What a colourful species and a gem of our Western Ghat! Lucky to sight 6+ of these feeding in a riverside of a dense forest area. The blue-winged parakeet, also known as the Malabar parakeet (Psittacula columboides) is a species of parakeet endemic to the Western Ghats of southern India. Adult Male has Red beak, however Adult Female has black beak to distinguish.
