Lovebird, Rosy-faced

Unread post by Yolandé Oelsen » Fri Jan 30, 2009 4:10 pm

Hi Deefstes,
The parakeet we heard on Sunday at Seringveld, I've seen today.
It was sitting in the grass at the side of the road, with at least 4 others.
I have ID it as a Rosyfaced Lovebird, specifically due to the blue back between the wings. And the pinkish face.

The others flew away when I stopped but this one flew into the first tree.
