Layard’s Parakeet (Alu Girawa)

Smaller than a Common Mynah, but with a longer tail, this lovely parakeet is easily recognized by its lavender-grey head and mantle, broad emerald green collar and deep cobalt blue tail. The male has a scarlet red beak while that of the female is black.Young of both sexes are green all over with a darker head. Their beaks are orange-red in colour initially.
