While there have been several small groups of parrots and parakeets that I seen, all of which were birds that escaped from captivity. In many of the large US cities, pet birds end up escaping and form up small groups, that seem to thrive in the urban environment. On our trip to Parque Bosque de Coloma, in Guadalajara, I got to see my first real live parrots that are native to the area. This small group of Lilac-crowned Amazons were hanging around in the tops of the trees in the park. They were a long ways up, and the conditions were not perfect so these are not great images, but there are good enough for an identification.
