About 35 years ago, I was home (Oceanside) during the week, and heard a bunch of squawking in my backyard. Up, in a pine tree, were 8 parrots, happily squawking away. Green and beautiful, they were. A bit noisy, but what can you do?

Fast forward to about a month ago, in downtown Carlsbad, I see a parrots (60-65 birds) flying in "V" formation, about 150' AGL. So, yes, they can establish populations in the wild, after being held captive. (Legend has it that these birds were "released" by a birder that could no longer take care of the original pair.)

Sorry, no pictures of them.
