The Lord Derby's Parakeet, also known as the Derbyan Parakeet, is a medium-sized parrot that lives in parts of central Asia, including India. They feed primarily on fruits, seeds and berries.

Lord Derby's Parakeets are named in honor of the 13th Earl of Derby. They are sexualy dimorphic, which means that males and females have different plumage. Most notably, males have a bright red beak with a small yellow tip, while females have an all-black beak.
