[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
The slaty-headed parakeet (Psittacula himalayana) is the only psittacid species to exhibit altitudinal migration. The species' range extends from Pakistan, to Western Himalayas in India through Nepal and Bhutan and up to the Eastern Himalayas in the northeastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. They descend to the valleys in winter, approximately during the last week of October. Adults of both genders have green (tinted with blue) feathers on most of their body. It has a dark grey (slate colored) head with a light blue tint where head meets the neck. Males feature dark maroon patches on inner wing coverts. Females do not feature these maroon patches. Males have long central tail feathers but, is shorter in female birds. The tail is green at base and becomes deep blue and widely tipped with bright yellow. The parakeet features a bright red-orange upper mandible with a pale yellow lower. It also has a pale yellow eye.

Hi Satirtha,

The branch is helping to frame the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Slaty-headed Parakeet. The sharpness is very good. Have a nice day.

Very cute Parakeet from Sattal, Satirtha.
The dorsal point of view presents the entire plumage of the bird beautifully.
Thanks and regards.

Ciao Satirtha, great capture of lovely parakeet, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend have a good weekend, ciao Silvio

Hello Satirtha,
Beautiful species and excellent pose. I like its colors. But don't know why didn't you get good details on its plumage and too grainy background. In India you received good light at the timing of capturing this picture. I've been using the same lens. Bit slow in low light though.
Thanks for sharing,
