Alexandra's Parrot

Those species we want to keep hearing about, even if already reported for the year, or the season. They're either rare (e.g. Red Goshawk), localised (e.g. Yellow-throated Miner), cryptic (e.g. owls, button-quail and crakes), unpredictable (e.g. various waterbirds and raptors), or migrants/nomads of local/national interest (e.g. swifts).

Alexandra's Parrot

Post by Christopher » Sun Mar 01, 2015 8:02 am

Hi Folks,

We are very confident that we have just seen a male Alexandra's Parrot (if it isn't, then it is an escaped introduced parrot) which is a first for us. Westbrook, 7-7:30 this morning. It has a very distinctive call (which is what made me pay attention in the first place) that I had never heard before. Not sure if they have been seen around the Downs before so figured I'd share.

Cheers :-)
