[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A familiar parrot in the western part of the Australian continent. There are two species of Ringnecks in Australia (not related to the Indian Ringneck parrot), with several sub-species each, hybridising at their distribution borders. This is the 28 parrot (Barnardius zonarius semitorquatus), a sub-species of the Western Ringneck, from the SW tip of Western Australia, showing its green belly. The red forehead identifies a male. Well known for their undulating call '28-28' (with a bit of imagination. As with most parrots, they need a tree hollow to nest and can raise up to 6 chicks between August and December.

Hi Odile,good details despite the distance and the diifficult light,a very interesting specie with beautiful plumage colors,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Bonsoir Odile,
La publication est intéressante mais l'image manque de netteté vraisemblablement parce que la photographie a été prise sans avoir recours à un trépied absolument indispensable avec un tel objectif.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
