You see them around in the UK too. Sometimes this way.

First time I saw one (Ciren)  I thought someone's pet had escaped.

Bloody foreign parakeets coming over here taking jobs from hard working British birds...

There's thousands of Indian ring neck parakeets in SE England.

I don't know if its an Indian ring neck type but there is definitely at least 1 in Battersea Park that I have seen previously.

I was deafened by about 20 of the buggers in that park next to the Fulham ground last year. Maybe like taxis they don't like going south of the river.

We have a robin that happily perches onto the fence. A pleasant site on a sunny day.

Why do some people call women "birds". Is it derogatory and out of place a fifth of the way into the 21st century?

Was it the same one that was on ours the other day.
The frecer was back yesterday but didn't stay long because the police helicopter made yet another prolonged appearance
in these parts.
As an aside, spotted a pair of tits in next doors but one, back garden earlier.
Short lived as I had to stand on the shitter and peer out of the bathroom window to see them.

I'm not very good at identifying birds bar the familiar ones. We have had a Woodpecker in the garden though, and a couple i have no clue what they were.

The term "bird" goes back to Georgian times and refers to a prostitute, so yes its very much a derogatory term. Although it was spelled as "byrd".
