You're In My Face Mr...! - Blue Ringneck Parrot - NZ by 


The small town of Gore in Southland has a lovely Avery in the local gardens. Once a fortnight I venture from our “Tranquillity” to do grocery shopping, not my favorite pastime, so I have made it a tradition to spend at least an hour wondering through the gardens with my camera and catching up with the birds. This little blue ring neck was trying to catch a nap on the perch above, while the peacock was in full display below to his lady love. I watched them for ages, and eventually the ring neck decided to take matters into his own wings by taking a bite out of the peacocks tail. Well why not… he was in my face… It was such a cute little scene to observe and it made my day….

The Ringneck is highly intelligent and does make a good pet. They can be taught to speak, whistle, perform tricks (untying knots, stringing beads), and mimic other sounds. Be warned: for a smaller bird, they can be very vocal and painfully loud.
Indian Ringnecks (IRN) have stable personalities and can cope with minimal attention during busy times, this does not mean they are content alone however, and are great companions. These birds have a reputation of being difficult to keep. Avian breeders, who have had little experience with Ringnecks, are usually quick to point out that Ringnecks make unsuitable pets. This is not true however, though they can be more challenging than other types pf parrots.
The Indian Ringneck is classified as a parakeet. These birds have hooked beaks, long tails, and are moderately small. These characteristics classify them as parakeets; however, they are true parrots. These parrots are about 16 inches in length and they have a look that gives them a stealthy appearance.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
