Indian Lorikeet by Nagendra S.P.

The Indian Lorikeet or the Vernal Hanging Parrot Loriculus vernalis is a denizen of dense canopied tropical forests. This is the only representative of the true parrots in India, where their relatives, the parakeets dominate. Wherever Lorikeet exist, we can be sure that healthy, thick-canopied forests also survive. The birds are threatened by the destruction of forests and also by the pet trade.
