Thoughts on “How Did South American Monk Parakeets End Up in Hyde Park?”

  1. We’ve seen them as far south as my grandparents house on 105th and King Drive! Last summer, a pair liked to perch on the wires above the backyard.

  2. A few are ok, but if they were as numerous as pigeons, we would hate the noise, at least until it deafened us.
