This non-migrating species is one of few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in 'disturbed habitats', and in that way withstood the onslaught of urbanisation and deforestation. In the wild, this is a noisy species with an unmistakable squawking call.
You don't have to travel far to enjoy nature. Even in a small backyard in a big city like Amsterdam you can spot nature. Although there is a population of parakeets in the park nearby the birds are found in the neighbourhood frequently. Probably because more and more people are putting out food. And 'No', they don't share food, they fight over it.
