I saw about a dozen Gray Herons at the Barcelona Zoo, all outside of cages, nesting in treetops and hanging out in trees. Signs explained that the zoo has the largest urban colony of Gray Herons in Europe, with 130 nests! The Barcelona Zoo welcomes local birds and even tags their resident Gray Herons, Yellow-legged Gulls, and Black-headed Gulls.

Here are more photos of Monk Parakeets (Myiopsitta monachus) in Barcelona, this time in Parque Güell. One photo shows the typical enormous nests they build in treetops, in this case a Date Palm tree. These will be my last photos of these invasive birds, as I've realized they are everywhere in this city where there are trees.

Description

This is the largest flock of Monk Parakeets (Myiopsitta monachus) I've yet seen in Spain, about 50, in the Parque de la Ciudadela. And for the first time I noticed about 5 or 6 with little tags on metal rings around their necks, like dogtags. The one visible here is D24, and I also photographed E50 and others. I don't know if they had these tags when they escaped from a pet shop or their owners, or whether the City may have tagged them.

The invasive Monk parakeets, Myiopsitta monachus, seem to be everywhere in Barcelona! A noisy flock were in the trees next to Sagrada Familia, and two were carrying branches from this tree to a Date Palm tree, probably for a nest. I've also seen them today in Plaza Letamendi and dozens in the larger Parque de la Ciudadela.

The spot on its head isn't identical to the illustration in my field guide, and it seems paler than the gray in the field guide and photos online.
