Parrot Week BPW: Rose-ringed Parakeet

I’m kicking off a week of blog posts on parrots with this Bird Photography Weekly submission. The number of parrots on my life list is very small – ONE! We spotted this Rose-ringed Parakeet at the Taj Mahal in India back in 2006. This one is a juvenile, since it hasn’t developed its ring yet. We saw others on the India trip, but this was the first.

I’ve also seen feral parrots in a few places: Monks in Madrid and Rose-ringed in my back yard in Leiden. I find the number of parrots on my life list far too small. Hope to change that someday!

Bird Photography Weekly is a regular collection of user-submitted bird photos from all over the world. The new edition comes out every Sunday. Go have a look at this week’s submissions!

Share the birds, share the love!

    Great photo of a beautiful little parakeet. Parrots are one of the most common birds in my backyard. They are always noisy and frequently destructive – but always fun to watch!

  3. That is a very nice looking parrot! My life list only includes one…the feral Peach Faced Lovebirds in Arizona.

    Beautiful shot of the Rose-ringed Parakeet Amy. I have even fewer parrots on my list and I will change that someday! They are beautiful birds.

    The feral parrots in Brooklyn are “famous.” I must get there and try and see them.

    He’s a beauty! What color!

    I like your life list of parrots 🙂
    The rose-ringed is a beauty. I saw them in Nepal.
