When I saw reports of some recent sightings of Monk Parakeets in Gilbert, AZI checked the AZFO checklistfor Monk Parakeets and saw thatthey were not onit. Does this mean that the Monk Parakeets in Gilbert are also not ABA listable?If so, does anyone know if are there any other states besides FL where Monk Parakeet sightings can be put on an ABA list?
Please answer off-list is this is not an appropriate topicfor AZNMBirds.
I used to live in Florida and know that Monk Parakeets are fun to watch(though not much liked by utility companies whenever they build their huge nest on utility poles), but I'd rather not go out of my way to see an exotic in my current home state!
