Birds of England ???

view map

These parakeets are part of a huge flock living in the south of England.
For 20 years, maybe longer they have been breeding.
The flock is getting larger and spreading further.
They are obviously not native to england.
So, are they now birds of England, or at what time in the future will they be birds of England.
50 years, 500 years, 5 thousand years.


other sizes: small medium large

Ring-necked parakeets are officially on the list of British birds as maintained by the BOU (British Orithologists Union) they have been for some time as they are a 'self sustaining' population. Originally from Asia. Hope that helps - yes they are Birds of England!

Just a branch of the parrot family.

They look good Larry, they sound awful. They scream like a bunch of insane harridans.

Interesting. They would not survive in Michigan. Cool that they thrive in England. I always thought they were some of the best looking birds.
