野紅領綠鸚鵡 wild rose-ringed parakeets

從前的認知,香港的野鸚鵡有地域分野,香港島中區有白色的葵花鳳頭鸚鵡,九龍公園有亞歷山大鸚鵡和紅領綠鸚鵡。但隨著年月增進,分界似乎開始模糊。有時候中環以外都看到小葵花。近幾星期在香港公園和花園道都看到紅領綠鸚鵡。

雖然說紅領,事實上只有雄性的領後有粉紅的環斑,雌性和幼鳥該位置只有淡斑甚至無。牠們是吃素的。

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.
