Latin Name: (Psittacula derbiana)

Derbyan Parrot
The Lord Derby’s Parakeet also known as Derbyan Parakeet, is a monotypic parrot species, which is confined to small pocket of moist evergreen forest in the hills of the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh and the adjoining parts of Tibet.

The name of this bird commemorates Edward Stanley, 13th Earl of Derby.

The species suffers from poaching for the illegal wildlife trade and fetches a high price in the black market.

The Derbyan Parakeet feeds on fruits, berries, seeds, and leaf buds, occasionally foraging in gardens and fields.

A pair will feed their chicks until they are weaned and can fledge from the nest around eight to nine weeks after being born.

Female Derbyan Parakeets do not have this bright orange beak. Instead they have a black beak, but nonetheless, are still just as stunning.

They are gifted at talking. Both sexes are able to talk, but it appears that the males are more gifted at talking.
