Rose-ringed Parakeets in Tabuk – Bird records by Viv Wilson

Viv Wilson sent me an e-mail this week showing Rose-ringed Parakeets Psittacula krameri he saw in Tabuk. The species is a locally common resident in larger cities in Saudi Arabia. This species is relatively common in Riyadh but outside the capital it is less frequent and rather scarce in the southwest. They are also a common resident to towns and villages of the Gulf, including my local patch of Dhahran and in Jeddah. They are probably an introduced species that have become a self-sustaining resident breeder.
