The Parrots of Oosterpark

“There are parrots which escaped from the zoo in the park” said Willow

Some say they are released pets from the 1970s.  at first there was concern that they might compete with the native dutch birds for warm nesting spots during the cold dutch winters.  But it seems like they are peacefully co-existing.

Technically, they are Parakeets.
