Australian Ringneck
(Barnardius zonarius)

Native to mainland Australian states, except for extreme north, tropical and highland areas, the species has adapted to a variety of habitats, ranging from forest, through to scrub and farmland, as well as semi-arid areas. Previously grouped as 2 or 4 separate species, all the parrots with the distinctive yellow ‘ringneck’ hind-collar are races of a single species.

The races of Australian Ringnecks, all have their own locally common names and may be named differently in different parts of the country. The Australian Ringnecks differ not only in appearance, but in their calls and other details.

The following images of Australian Ringneck are sometimes known as the Port Lincoln Parrot (Barnardius zonarius zonarius).
