|Rose-ringed Parakeet Couple|
One fine morning when I was walking I saw these two sitting on a tree. I started taking snaps but never thought of catching them during beak-lock act. This collage shows how they started off... Just see the looks and expressions in their eyes. The Rose-ringed parakeet is sexually dimorphic. The adult male sports a red 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.
The Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the Ring-necked Parakeet, is a gregarious tropical Afro-Asian parakeet species that has an extremely large range. Since the trend of the population appears to be increasing, the species has been evaluated as Least Concern by IUCN in 2009.
Rose-ringed parakeets are popular as pets. Its scientific name commemorates the Austrian naturalist Wilhelm Heinrich Kramer.

Nice collage, Kirti.
The movement is well recorded and presents the situation effectively. Good document on birds' behaviour.
