IntroductionIn many cities across the United States (USA),from Boston to Los Angeles and Seattle to Miami,free-flying parrots and parakeets can now be seen.Likewise, feral parakeets are now present in Eng-land in the Greater London area, on the Isle ofThanet in Kent, and in select cities along the southcoast. In some areas, these feral parrots have beenpresent for decades, whereas in others, parrots haveonly been present for a few years. This paper sum-marizes the historical changes in number… Expand
Status of naturalized parrots in the United States
The contiguous United States (USA) originally had two endemic parrot species, the Carolina Parakeet (Conuropsis carolinensis) and the Thick-billed Parrot (Rhynchopsitta pachyrhyncha). The CarolinaExpand
A comparison of the establishment, expansion and potential impacts of two introduced parakeets in the United Kingdom
TLDR
The United Kingdom population of Rose-ringed Parakeets Psittacula krameri became established primarily as a result of persistent releases or escapes, and evidence suggests that the species is becoming an agricultural pest and that it might be capable of successfully competing with native species for nest cavities.

History of nonnative Monk Parakeets in Mexico
TLDR

Understanding the origins of the ring‐necked parakeet in the UK
TLDR
It is concluded that the ring-necked parakeet’s establishment in Britain is more likely to be a consequence of repeated releases and introductions, a view supported by a detailed search of the British Newspaper Archive. Expand
Biology and Impacts of Pacific Island Invasive Species. 15. Psittacula krameri, the Rose-Ringed Parakeet (Psittaciformes: Psittacidae)
TLDR
The rose-ringed parakeet (RRP), Psittacula krameri, has become established in at least four Pacific Island countries, including the Hawaiian islands of Kaua’i, O‘ahu, and Hawai‘i, and island societies should prevent new introductions and consider RRP deterrents and population control methods to protect resources.

NATURAL HISTORY OF THE MONK PARAKEET IN HYDE PARK, CHICAGO

TLDR
The Green-rumped Parrotlet is used as a model system for investigating sources of heterogeneity that might bias interspecific comparisons of avian life histories, and estimates of local survival could be affected by breeding dispersal, but site fidelity of parrotlets was strong. Expand
