Rose-ringed parakeets in Rosebank

Rose-ringed parakeets in Rosebank

We moved to apartment living in Rosebank in September and have, for the first time become aware of the beginnings of the devastation of the urban forest. On the upside, however, we also enjoy almost daily sightings of rose-ringed parakeets.

I used to be a very keen birder, but nowadays, I simply enjoy hearing and seeing them and no longer go out of my way to tick new ones. So it's years since I added another tick to the 700+ list that I had accumulated over time. Imagine my surprise then, when I've recently added a new tick without having to leave our apartment! There's a small flock of five rose-ringed parakeets that is resident in our neighbourhood. They perch in one of the nearly dead trees nearby and display their brilliant green colour when catching the sun in flight. OK, so they're not indigenous, but they really are quite beautiful.
