this is a medium-sized parrot in the genus psittaculaof the family psittacidae and has a very wide range.
the rose-ringed parakeet is sexually dimorphic. the adult male sports a red and black neck ring and the hen and immature birds of both sexes either show no neck rings, or display shadow-like pale to dark grey neck rings. both sexes have a distinctive green colour. rose-ringed parakeets measure on average 40 cm (16 in) in length, including the tail feathers, a large portion of their total length. their average single-wing length is about 15 to 17.5 cm (5.9 to 6.9 in). in the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call, and captive individuals can be taught to speak. it is herbivorous and not migratory.
