Pretty Birdy

Mystery Bird
Well.......at least a mystery to me.  I took this photo in New Zealand and he/she certainly looks like some variety of parrot, but since I know less than nothing about birds, I really have no idea.  (Where are you Robin when I need you!)  He's sure pretty, though, and he posed nicely for my camera.

Karen, It certainly is a pretty one!
I don't know a lot about parrot, but from a quick look I think this is a Red-fronted Parakeet! And that's all I can tell you about it!
I always thought that it must be wonderful to live in a place where they had wild parrots and such!

Karen this is stunning, it's the perfect photo! I've shot tons of parrot photos while I've been here and the one I'm going to enlarge when I return home is being doctored by my sis, she's the photoshop pro! lol
