Resumen: Psittacula krameri registró en las Antillas- El 2 y el 16 de abril del 2000 se observó una pareja de Periquitos Rosados Psittacula krameri en el Norte de La Habana. Este primer récord, sin embargo, no permite determinar si ambas aves escaparon de jaulas en Cuba, o si se trató de transeuntes procedentes de la Florida, USA.
