It is a Rose-ringed Parrakeet (Psittacula
krameri), a common pet, also called Indian Ringneck Parrot.
Ted Blackman has asked me to find
out if anyone can identify an exotic
escapee parrot that visited his
garden in Turramurra Sydney yesterday. He
guesses it's of
Size: larger than a King Parrot
longer than body, thin and tapering to the end.
Head: Pale lime
Body: pale greeny yellow
Wings: olive green with a
maroon shoulder patch
Bill: Thick and heavy
A ring around the
neck which was dark in front and pale pink behind the
thanks in anticipation.
