  1. Incredible, I knew these birds were quite prolific in Africa but didn't know their range had now extended to the Netherlands! Posted 9 years ago
  2. Yes, and they are also in London and moving out. Originally escapees that like the environment. Posted 9 years ago

The rose-ringed parakeet is a medium-sized parrot in the genus Psittacula, of the family Psittacidae. It has disjunct native ranges in Africa and the Indian Subcontinent, and is now introduced into many other parts of the world where feral populations have established themselves and are bred for the exotic pet trade.
