|"Less than a century after the only parrot exclusively native to the United States became extinct, another parrot has become established in North America. The monk or Quaker parrot isn�t crowding out songbirds or woodpeckers or scissor-tailed fly catchers, but rather prefers urban habitat modified in ways most native species cannot survive."|
"Will this new parrot be allowed to stay?"
"Is there room today for parrots in the city?"
Parrot behavior consultant, Mattie Sue Athan, has won Amazon's Best-selling Bird Care and OWFI's Best Non-Fiction Book Awards. Here she joins Jon-Mark and JoAnn Davey to document the status of wild monk/Quaker parrots. The coauthors share almost half a century of experience watching wild parrots in North America. QPS sponsored the publication of Parrots in the City.
PITC co-author Jon-Mark Davey, spends considerable time documenting Wild Quakers on film and in photographs. Jon- Mark writes in a post to the members of the Quaker Parakeet Society Discussion List: "I decided to put together a small album of some of the very neatest photos of the "Wild Ones". When you look at these photos see if you can spot some visual characteristics of YOUR Quakers.... I could see so many faces and attitudes that my babies have in the faces of many of these wild ones.... watching them through lenses I could really see so many similarities and so many differences all at the same time."
