Parrots in the Netherlands


This video shows an Alexandrine parakeet in Spain.

Dutch Vroege Vogels TV reported on 24 June 2016 about parrots in the Netherlands.

37 feral parrot species have been seen flying freely in the Netherlands at various times.

Three of them breed now in the Netherlands: ring-necked parakeets, thousands of them in the western Netherlands.

Larger Alexandrine parakeets breed in Amsterdam and Haarlem cities: nine couples in 2012.

Monk parakeets, the smallest of the three species, nest in the eastern Netherlands.

Feral cockatiels, Senegal parrots, and scarlet macaws have nested in the Netherlands as well, but not any more.
