Monk Parakeet & Urban Pest (Myiopsitta monachus)

Barcelona, May 2013. These cute birds are becoming a pest in many Mediterranean Cities. They are very loud and fly around like missiles. They are mostly in pairs. Intriguing when first heard and hard to spot because of their coloring.   Nikon 1 V1/Nikkor 10-100mm @64mm; f5.6; 1/100; ISO 400   Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2016
