[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
We have played hide and seek several minutes long with this ringneck, I must admit he won...
The Ringneck is a medium-sized parrot (about 35 cm). There are 4 subspecies, quite different in colors ; this one is known as 'twenty-eight parrot', he lives in the south-west quarter of Australia, in preference in forests.
Both sexes are identical, as far I know.
The species is not threatened, but, in Western Australia, it gets locally displaced by the introduced Rainbow Lorikeets that aggressively compete for nesting place.

Despite strands of grass obstructing the clear view, it is a lovely picture of this colourful Parrot, Philippe.
In fact, I like this picture more owing to this situation.
