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!
