The Australian Ringneck is a beautiful species of parrot native to Australia. They live in southwestern forests of coastal and subcoastal Western Australia. The Twenty-eight Parrot is named for its call! It sounds like it is shouting out 'twentee-eight' when it calls. The bird eats mostly on the ground and its diet consists of seeds, fruits, insects and flowers.
