Cerca de mi casa se encuentra un camellón y pues ahí se instalaron unos pericos.
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.
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.
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.
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.
