Ejemplar hembra. Hermoso color verde brillante. Naturalizado en Le Cascine.
Seen in a woodland.
A few of these birds were eating some sort of seed pods in a tree along the bluff. I didn't believe my eyes at first. I'm guessing these are descended from released captive birds.
A number of these birds were seen in flight and perched high in the trees here at the notable Biblical archaeological site and nature reserve. I estimate the size of the birds at about 38 cm.
The Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the Ring-necked Parakeet, is a gregarious tropical Afro-Asian parakeet species that has an extremely large range. Since the trend of the population appears to be increasing, the species was evaluated as Least Concern by IUCN in 2012.
