Photo of a Mallee Ringneck Parrot taken in Mutawintji National Park, far west New South Wales, Australia.
There are 4 races or subspecies that make up the single species Australian Ringneck. The Mallee Parrot is one of these subspecies. The subspecies differ not just in appearance, but in their calls and the range in which they are found. They do however interbreed in the transitional zones of their range.
