Lord Derby's Parakeet
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.
Details & Statistics
The Lord Derby's Parakeet is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2014 by BirdLife International. This species is listed as Near Threatened based on evidence that it is disappearing and declining in some areas and subject to locally heavy off-take for the cagebird trade and is thus suspected to be experiencing a moderately rapid decline.
