Indian rose-ringed parakeets measure on average 40 cm (16 in) in length including the tail feathers, a large portion of their total length. Their average single wing length is about 15–17.5 cm (5.9–6.9 in). In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call and a distinctive green colour.
