Hi all,

Looks like there is a feral population of Rose-ringed Parakeets ("Indian 
Ringnecks") in Albion Park Rail, NSW. We kept hearing the distinctive calls of 
this species and saw several birds flying around. Moreover, we observed a male 
and a female checking out a nesting cavity. Does anyone have information on 
this population? Has anyone reported them?

As discussed previously, this species is very invasive with thousands of birds 
in the UK, Spain, France, Belgium,Netherlands, Germany, South Africa, USA and 
Japan. Hopefully, they don't settle here.
