Figs 1 to 3 :
Long-tailed Parakeet - male and female
Psittacula longicauda
Location : Portsdown, Singapore
Habitat : Wooded, residential area
Notes : This courting pair frequented the highest branch of a dead Acacia for many days. The male is particularly impressive with his long tail and brightly patterned plumage. Courtship involved each parakeet rubbing its head against the chest of the other in a circular motion, followed by mutual pecking and 'kissing', prior to copulation.
