Alexandrine Parakeet
Psittacula eupatria
This parrot comes from the Indian sub-continent through to Indo-China. The story goes, however unconfirmed, that its name was given after the armies of Alexandra the Great arrived back home from their conquest of India with many of these birds as pets.
The bird nests in the spring, lays three to four eggs that hatch in 21 days and the young leave the nest in about seven weeks.
These very intelligent birds live in small groups during the day and flock together in the evening in very large groups, consisting of hundreds or more to spend the night in palm trees, then separating again in the morning. Once a group has been formed, they generally remain together. The birds gnaw out their own nests in the trees of their choice.
