Report: Wild Quaker Parrots in Freeport, Illinois

Photo credit: Barbara Baird/The Freeport Journal Standard
A report by Barbara Baird in the Freeport, Illinois Journal Standard titled "The Charming Monk Parakeets Are Here" announces the fact that wild Quaker Parrots (AKA Monk Parakeets) have taken up residence in that town.

Ms. Baird writes eloquently about the wild monks, traces their history in Chicago, and recounts her prior experiences with them in Corpus Christi, Texas. This article is a treat for all of us who admire these remarkable birds.
