Monk Parakeet in Florida Feb 2014


 Out with Janet, Donna and guide Kathryn when I noticed the green birds on top of the trees.  Monk Parakeet.  According to a lady who walks the parks daily they had arrived the day before.  Again a lifer bird for me and one I really wanted to see.


The Monk Parakeet, also known as the Quaker Parrot.   This parakeet is 29 cm or 9 to 11 in long on average, with a 48 cm wingspan, and weighs 100 g.
