Bourke's Parrot
This species of grass parakeet from southwest/central Australia is known by several names: Bourke Parakeet, Bourke's Parrot, Bourke Grass Keet and (see below) Rosa Bourkes and Rosey Bourkes Parakeet. It's taxonomic name has been changed from Neophema bourkii to Neopsephotus (new pebbled) bourkii, since it was determined to be a species on its own and cannot produce hybrids with other Neophema species.
