It looks like a female plum headed parakeet.

Re: help me identify

What a pretty bird., I'm not familiar with the breed. I'm glad you want to take good care of him :-)

What part of the world are you from?

If you can, and as soon as you can, it will be best to replace that round cage with a larger, rectangular one. Birds tend to feel very insecure in a round cage.

Stick around and post more pics!

Re: help me identify

Species, not breed.


She needs a large cage with appropriate perches and a diet richer in vegetables, grains, legumes, pellets (if available), sprouted seeds, the occasional cooked eggs and a small amount of fruit.


Please, if you can, get her a better cage with no wires to sit on.
