Alexandra's Parrot

Polytelis alexandrae Gould, 1863

The colourful Princess Parrot, Polytelis alexandrae, is an Australian bird of the parrot family. Its name was given in honour of Princess Alexandra of Denmark, who later married the Prince of Wales Edward VII and eventually became the Queen of England. Other names for the species include: Queen Alexandra Parrot (or Parakeet), Alexandra's Parakeet, Princess of Wales Parakeet, Rose-throated Parakeet, and Spinifex Parrot. Their plumage is mostly green with a pink throat, bluish crown and rump, and bright green shoulders. Source: Wikipedia
