Parrot's in Singapore

In a informal survey count by Nature Society of the population of parrots in Singapore, the results were pretty good. Conducted by volunteers at various spots in Singapore in January 2011, 546 parrots of seven species were estimated. The counts were made only for parrots in flight and not perched.

Whether this estimates are correct are not is beside the point, but more importantly urban Singapore plays host to 3 native species:
  1. Long-tailed Parakeet
  2. Blue-crowned hanging parrot
  3. Blue-rumped Parrot
and 4 or more introduced species. They include:
  1. Red-breasted Parakeet
  2. Rainbow lorikeets
  3. Tanimbar corella
  4. Yellow-crested Cockatoo
Some of the photos of this cute birds taken by me at various places around Singapore.
