A very interesting bird to watch with their long tails and always seem to come in groups.
About Rose-ringed Parakeet on Birdinginformation
snippets: The Rose-Ringed Parakeet is bright green with a yellow wash on its under parts, wings, and tail. The tail is very long, and makes up the majority of the bird’s length which is about 16″. The tail has a blue central tail feather bordered by green feathers also washed in blue. The male has a black chin and neck band, and a rose colored ring around the nape of his neck.
Rose-Ringed Parakeets are native to Asia and Africa; they are not native to the United States. We have feral birds that have escaped captivity which have established stable populations in Florida, Hawaii and California. In the wild they can be found in forests and arid environments. In the United States, they are found in forests, marshes, farms, and grasslands and city parks.
