hong kong has a recognizable population of wild parrots. it used to be territorial specific. central on hong kong island is the home base of yellow-crested cockatoo, and alexandrine parakeet and rose-ringed parakeet are seen at kowloon park.
but as time passes, the territorial distinction seems fading a bit. i’ve seen some white fellows at wanchai; and last month, i spotted rose-ringed parakeets in hong kong park and at garden road.
according to wiki, the rose-ringed parakeet is a gregarious tropical afro-asian parakeet species that has an extremely large range. the rose-ringed parakeet is sexually dimorphic. the adult male sports a red or black neck-ring and the hen and immature birds of both sexes either show no neck rings, or display shadow-like pale to dark grey neck rings.
