Rosy-faced lovebird

Agapornis roseicollis


Small parrot looks a little like a Quaker parrot but with a shorter tail and generally smaller overall. There was a pair and one was rather yellow and the other more blue-green colored. The second and last photos show the more yellow one. Note the yellowish forehead.


In the trees along an inland fresh water canal.


These two parrots were noisy and called to each other continuously as they explored the trees in the area. They are rosy-faced lovebirds, sometimes called peach-faced lovebirds. This species has large color variations among its members.

I can say that is a fantastic photo and it is a parrot of some sort I can't figure out what type though. That is an awesome photo though. Keep it up.
