Monk Parakeet (Myiopsitta monachus)

Texas, November 18, 2015 // Aiello Park, December 23, 2018

John first spotted one of these during Supercomputing 2015 in Texas.

A few years later, we learned that there was a regular breeding colony closer to home at Aiello Park in New Rochelle. It's now a common stopping point during Christmas bird counts and Birdathons in the area.
