Orange-fronted Parakeet

OF Parakeet Blumine 2013-03-02

Seen on a trip to Blumine Island in the Marlborough Sounds, where these rare parakeets have been introduced and are breeding well.  It is quite hard to see the faint orange above the bill unless these birds are at close quarters.  Otherwise they are similar to the Yellow-Crowned Parakeet.
