Remarks :Two males and a female.The population of these feral parakeets has gone up in the colony, but habitat loss has kept them away from their usual nesting and feeding place close to my residence. After almost a year, these parakeets made their presence felt yesterday, only for a few moments though. It's been around eight years that I have been watching these birds in our residential complex. - NM
