Description : Grey-necked Bunting is sometimes referred to as grey-hooded bunting. This bunting has a long pink bill and is greyish above. The male has a distinctive white eye-ring that stands out in contrast to the grey hood. The chin and throat are whitish pink and are bordered by grey malar stripes. The underparts are pinkish brown. The female is duller but the moustachial stripe can appear more noticeable. The outer tail feathers are whitish. It breeds along a wide distribution range from the Caspian Sea to the Altai Mountains in Central Asia and winters in parts of Southern Asia. It is commonly found in scrublands, fields, and grasslands. It constructs a cup-shaped nest either on the ground or low within a bush. The clutch usually consists of three to six eggs, with four being the most common number. These eggs are whitish with reddish-brown speckling and require an incubation period of 12 days. The breeding season of the rose-ringed parakeet is variable and can span from May to August.
