The Rose-ringed Parakeet is a gregarious tropical parakeet species. They don't migrate and is one of few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in 'disturbed habitats', and in that way withstood the onslaught of urbanisation and deforestation. In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call.
Four subspecies are recognized, though they do not differ much:
The Rose-ringed Parakeet has established feral populations in India, a number of European cities, South Africa and Japan. There are also stable populations in the USA in Florida and California, and a small but self-sustaining population Tehran, Iran, mostly concentrated in the northern parts of city.
