Blossom-headed Parakeet

Blossom-headed Parakeet 
Psittacula Roseata
A small flock of ten Blossom-headed Parakeets made my trip to Huay Mai Teng Reservoir very memorable indeed. More to the point they allowed a couple of shots in the fading light and fortunately they were facing setting sun. This is my first lifer in a while so I am especially pleased. There were also two Black-collared Starlings in the area and my mystery birds came out at dusk but I could not take their identification any further forward. It even crossed my mind they might be bats. However for me a perfect hour after a long tiring day at work and these parakeets are beauties.
