Abstract

Observations of the Rose-ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) in Bulgaria are presented with locations and additional details. The data about the species occurrence were collected from 2003 to 2017, mainly in or close to areas, where the species was observed before, and new locations were also added. The present research aims to contribute to the knowledge about the distribution of this potentially invasive alien species in Bulgaria.
