Fotos de varios individuos que estaban muy cerca unos de otros.
and yet another monk parakeet colony. this one is very active being built in multiple sections of tower over top a fire station
the monk parakeets have been busy,,,, a new nest on E Wheatland Road between hwy 67 and S Cockrell Hill Road.
I checked in on my neighborhood Monk Parakeets. My! they have been busy. they have added to the second nest (the nest that had blown down a few times during March) and added a third nest at a nearby utility pole during my rehab from surgery. photos 2,3,&4 are the new nest. photo 6 & 7 are of the enlarged secured second nest. photo 11 is of the first nest in this block. The original nest - still active is ~1 mile east on Danieldale Road...toward hwy 67 interesting note is that all 4 nests are on the same side of the street
Seen in Trader's Village, Grand Prairie, TX. Probably an escapee from the many bird vendors here.
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.
