Tropical Scotland?

Peach-faced lovebirds (Agapornis roseicollis), native to East Africa, are breeding in the wilds of Scotland, according to this article at scotsman.com. The birds, known in the town of Dunbar since at least 2001, are assumed to be former pets that were released by their owners into the wild. Arizona also has established populations of this species - check out this site for detailed information along with adorable photos of lovebirds on saguaro.
