    Is this Plum headed parakeet female?

    Hi everyone

    Spotted this at Mamzar this morning . I was attracted by its different call.

    Apologies for against light photography but that was all that I could manage.

    I dont see any documentation in the field guides for Plum headed parakeet in this region. It does not seem slaty headed as upper mandible is yellow.

    thanks and regards

    Yes, female Plum-headed. It has a pale yellow collar and dark lower mandible, which rule out female Blossom-headed.

    These are escaped birds.
