Pin: Ringneck Parrot
This pin was modeled on the Port Lincoln Ringneck Parrot or to Alice Springs residents just ‘Ringneck’ will do. As well as being a very striking bird its also very cheeky and won’t say no to posing for the camera. It’s found from Port Lincoln in the south east to Alice Springs in the north east, and from the Karri and Tingle forests of South Western Australia up to the Pilbara district.
Fun fact: There are 56 species of Parrot found in Australia, and only five of these are found elsewhere in the world.
