Australian Ringneck (or Twenty-eight Parrot )perching - head detail. The Australian Ringneck (Barnardius zonarius) is a large, broad-tailed parrot with several different forms distributed across its range, although all of them have a yellow collar around their hind neck. Their calls also vary geographically. This bird belongs to the south-western Australian race (Barnardius zonarius semitorquatus), known locally as the Twenty-eight Parrot because one of its calls is described that way. Ringnecks eat a wide variety of seeds, eucalypt blossoms and fruits, and are often pest in orchards because they attack apples and other cultivated fruits. Elevation: 249 m.
