12 - Halsbandparkieten - Ringnecked Parakeets

One of my favourite views from my window in winter.

This is a widespread group, with a clear concentration of species in south Asia,
but also with representatives in Africa and the islands of the Indian Ocean.
Strangely enough there lives a large population in our neighbourhood.

They are quite beautiful and tropical! Wow, I'd like to have these in my yard!

They're rather pretty with the green plumage and pink beak & neck!

Nice view! We have some wild parots that fly around areas of San Diego too. You can hear them coming for miles. Very noisey.

Oh how I would love to have these birds coming to our feeders! I've only seen this variety of bird for sale in pet shops in the US.
Have a nice day Maaike! :)
