What do you get when you cross a parrot and a centipede?
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. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Monk_Parakeet/lifehistory )
