Indian ringneck parakeet, which
is of course an alternate name for Rose-ringed Parakeet and we get this enquiry
probably about once a year. This one is normal plumage, Some are mostly white,
blue or yellow. They are not necessarily all fresh releasees / escapers, some
may be living out there for a long time. Has Taylor included it in his new
edition Field Guide?
I wonder at how this one is decided to be a female.
