Hi all,
I was looking through an American book that I have, on Cage Parrot Behaviour and I came across a picture of two birds in a cage, one of them is a bird with a plum coloured cap and a green/blue ring around its neck the other was a similar sized bird with a dark blue cap yellow/green ring around its neck and a small red band at the top of its beak,on close inspection I realized that it was a 'Twenty-eight' Ring Neck,one of the subspecies of Australian Ringneck. The funny thing though, is that the script underneath the picture says this "....some parrots like to stay as pairs like these Plum Headed Parrots"
Obviously the bird with the plum coloured cap is a Plum Headed Parrot,but it was just interesting to see two completely different species together like that.I wonder if they have had any offspring?

For those who want to see the picture,the book is called, Barron's Guide to Companion Parrot Behaviour.
