The only one in India
The adventure of chasing the dream was of snapping up ” The only Parrot Specie found in India ” which started when I first Started Birding Seriously almost an Year back.
I tried my Luck in Few Places but was only able to get Record Shots and was not Happy as it wasn’t my Best Shot it.
But, I was Lucky enough to get a Decent Shot of it on my Recent Trip to Kerala.
It is very small of about 14 cm long with a short tail. Interestingly it is the only Parrot found in India.
The adult male has a red rump and bill, and blue throat patch whereas female has a green patch.This parrot is unique amongst birds for its ability to sleep upside down.
