Parrots in Justice?

It was a strange sight, and I had to look twice to make sure I wasn't imagining things: a flock of monk parrots landed in the apple tree in my parents' backyard. A chatty bunch, they seem to nibble a bit on the apples and just hang out otherwise.

Growing up, I never saw them, not even in Hyde Park where they've supposedly been for at least a couple of decades, and this is the first I heard of the Chicago-area population.

Are monk parrots the new rock dove?
