Long-tailed Parakeet in comfort behaviour

posted in: Feathers-maintenance, Videography | 0

“I came across a flock of 40 to 50 Long-tailed Parakeet (Psittacula longicauda) on 3rd September 2014 at about 4.40pm. They were perching on the branches of a tree near the entrance to the Lower Peirce Reservoir engaging in comfort behaviour after a shower. By the time I took out my camera, some of them had already left the scene (above).

A female(?) was seen exercising her jaw while moving down a bare branch
