Plum-headed Parakeet

Adorned with a bright cherry-coloured head, the Plum-headed Parakeet is one of the most cheerful-looking birds you'll see in Indian forests. Illegal capture for the pet trade is a growing threat to the bird's populations, and hundreds can be spotted in cages at illegal bird markets, thanks to poor enforcement of wildlife laws in India.

The cartoon is from my column with Roundglass Samsara, an online environment magazine.

Advantages of Being a Bat

I'm glad to announce that I'm launching a new column for Green Humour comics with Grammy-winning musician and conservationist Ricky Kej's 'Roundglass Samsara' magazine! After The Hindu's BL-ink, Gocomics, and Mid-Day, this will be my fourth running weekly column, and the second on the web. I choose to begin upside down, with one of my favourite group of animals- bats!

You can read more comics on the Roundglass Samsara website here, along with a wonderful assortment of articles and blogs on wildlife and nature.
