Weekly Photo Challenge : It IS Easy Being Green

For this rose-ringed parakeet (the Indian parrot), it is definitely easy being green (literally).

It can be easily identified by its shrill calls, very common even in urban localities that are dotted by at least a few trees.  My parent’s apartment has a Gulmohar tree right next to one of their balconies, which is a perfect hide out for these birds. With their green plumage and red beaks, they fit right in, among the branches of the gulmohar tree with lush green feathery leaves and bright red flowers. 

With a multitude of shades of green, this beautiful bird  is a master of camouflage  It would be really hard to spot one if it was a little quieter. Can you spot the two birds in the picture below?
