Plum-headed Parakeet (Psittacula cyanocephala)

The Plum-headed Parakeet is a bird of forest and open woodland. They are found from the foothills of the Himalayas south to Sri Lanka. They are not found in the dry regions of western India.

The photos above were taken in Thattekad Bird Sanctuary in Kerala, India.  It’s very easy to get to India using airline miles.  I have details in my blog post about “Getting to Central Asia using Miles“.  You can also see them in Nepal in the Chitwan National Park by flying into Kathmandu.
