Miami, FL Is this second pic the same Mitred Parakeet as pic 1 with a little more red on the face or could it possible be a Red-masked Parakeet? I don't think I see any red on the shoulders for it to be a Red-masked.

Red-masked Parakeet in second picture, Mitred in first. The photos look JUST LIKE the ones in my field guide!

Life list 158 and counting!  ;)

 

The "five-second rule" is totally fake. Seriously, people? :rolleyes:

Anyone else? A red-masked would be a lifer but I still think it is just another Mitred.

It appears that both Parakeets are Mitreds. One can see the maroon ring on the end of the beak that a Mitred has.
