Eating hawthorn fruits outside my school
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.
I saw this animal in the zoo, and when I saw with more attention I noticed that it was eating, so I found it very interesting and pretty at the same time.
The weather was perfect, sunny, so the parrot could go outside and eat.
Here are three photos of some Monk parakeets, Myiopsitta monachus, spotted feeding in the date palm trees along Passeig de Colon. I saw about 20-25 flying about, mostly in the date palm trees eating the ripe dates. I had noticed the same parakeets in parks in Madrid, and now here they are in Barcelona.
Como ya no eh visto a los pericos le tome foto a su nido
I saw flocks of these Myiopsitta monachus or Monk Parakeets foraging on the lawns of three Madrid parks. They are native to Argentina, and apparently released into Madrid's parks by people who bought them in pet shops and thought they'd like them as pets, then found them too noisy. Now they are so common in the parks, I read that there is talk of exterminating them along with unwelcome raccoons.
cuando caminaba por las calles de España me sorprendio ver a un pajaro como este y hasta ahora me he dado cuenta que es perico.
Aves con cabeza grande , pico en forma de gancho , grandes patas ,
colores bonitos y juguetones.
The Monk Parakeet, also known as the Quaker Parrot, (Myiopsitta monachus) is a species of parrot, in most treatments the only member of the genus Myiopsitta. It originates from the temperate to subtropical areas of Argentina and the surrounding countries in South America. Self-sustaining feral populations occur in many places, mainly in North America and Europe.
