Monk parakeets in flight
Here we call them monk parakeets - others call them 'Quaker parrots'. Very well established invasive species here in South Florida, huge 'apartment' style nests can be found on the side of power poles and cell towers with 15-30 or more nesting chambers. And they are very noisy!
