Abstract

The nesting ecology of birds varies depending on the species and the nature of the individual and sex. Five different pairs and ten individuals consisting of five male and five female of Indian Rose Ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) were studied. Inter and intra sexual variations of the nesting behaviour of both sexes of the birds were studied from 6.00 am to 6.00 pm. Female bird spent more time than the male bird in the nest
