I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Definitely not ex-parrots

The last thing I expected in London was feral tropical birds, but apparently rose-ringed parakeets now outnumber nightingales in the city.

Despite rumors, they were probably not descended from a pair released by Jimi Hendrix -- sadly, “there seems to be no evidence for any celebrity involvement in the parrotisation of London."

They were way up in the treetops so I couldn't get a better picture, but I can verify that they were quite active and very loud -- no material for dead parrot sketches here.
