Rose-ringed Parakeet

Psittacula krameri

This introduced parakeet has established feral populations in Gauteng and KZN.

We first recorded this species flying  over us, while having breakfast at the Irene dairy farm in Centurian. A very reliable spot to see this bird and witness its breeding behaviour is the road from Irene to the Jan Smuts House.
