Monk Parakeets

What do you get when you cross a parrot and a centipede?

A walkie-talkie.

Interesting Fact: Monk Parakeets in North America live in urban and suburban environments, especially around city parks. They are one of the few parrot species able to survive temperate-zone winters. In their native range in South America, Monk Parakeets live in dry savannas with scattered woods up to about 6,000 feet elevation.Β  ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Monk_Parakeet/lifehistory )

  1. LOL, love the joke! I had no idea there are wild parakeets in North America. Thanks for the education!

    • Oh yeah, I was shocked at first when I came across them for the first time. But they build up pretty big colonies up here. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
