Slaty-headed Parakeet

The Slaty-headed Parakeet (Psittacula himalayana) is the only psittacid species to exhibit altitudinal migration. The species' range extends from the foothills of the Western Himalayas in India, through Nepal and Bhutan and up to the Eastern Himalayas in the northeastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. They descend to the valleys in winter, approximately during the last week of October.
