Vernal Hanging Parrot

Over the weekend Murthy invited me to visit his uncle's place near Bhatkal, North Kanara. I jumped on the opportunity and I'd a great time. Watch out for the complete report later. This trip belonged to Indian Lorikeet or Vernal Hanging Parrot. Here is one.


  1. Gautham what does why it is called vernal hanging parrot ?

  2. If you notice their behaviour, they will be hanging mid air just before landing in their nest (preferred place of rest). I've another shot of the smae & will share it. Vernal means young
