Parrot Parade

Seems parrots are poised to take over England. According to this report from BBC News, the thousands of wild parrots that call Britain their home are increasing their numbers at a rate of 30% per year. BBC News, after summarizing the results of an Oxford University research project, then goes on to add a slew of anecdotal information from local readers who've sighted parrots in their neighborhoods.


The Quakers are increasing in Texas, too. They do displace native species, as well as killing some.
