The rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri) is a serious avian pest and as such, destroys a variety of food crops throughout the Central Punjab. This paper documents an information about the feeding regimens of the parakeet with reference to the sunflower field. For the two years, the average number of parakeet during the morning foraging session was 11.59 plus minus 1.76, and for the afternoon it was 15.29 plus minus 1.79. It was concluded that the food sources should be protected against the attack of parakeets preferably by using the trap crops near the cultivation along with the intelligent use of avicides and chemosterilants to inhibit the parakeet population.
