Ring Necked Parakeets are an escapee across temperate western Europe. In the UK it is slowly spreading northwards, and numerous sightings have been seen this far north.
I have personally witnessed one, and while it is undoubtedly a welcome additionin my tropical garden, it may cause problems with native wild birds.
For that reason I have rated it as a neutral.

I live in New Orleans and have seen what I believe to be a small band of these beautiful birds I'd say perhaps eight birds. I used to have a female for a pet when I was in India and she spoke in three different languages. Anyways getting back to the sighting ,I know they were not Monks because Monks do have that parakeet look to them and I've seen thousands of Monks when I lived in Miami. I am positive that what I saw were Ring-necked. I am curious to know if anyone else has seen them? Thanks.
