ABP: Kew Parakeet

Kew Parakeet, Psittacula krameri (2012)

Watercolour on paper, 210 x 297mm.

The UK’s only naturalised parrot – it is large, long-tailed and green with a red beak and a pink and black ring around its face and neck. In flight it has pointed wings, a long tail and very steady, direct flight. Often found in flocks, numbering hundreds at a roost site, it can be very noisy.
