Quoted in the article

The study’s findings punctuate the importance of banning the international trade in parrots, as well as the need for evaluating the unintended consequences of legislative and management action, says Michael Russello, an evolutionary biologist at the University of British Columbia in Kelowna, Canada.

That was a bit of a surprise! Here I was thinking as I read the article, feral parakeets here would die over winter. We saved ours as he wandered the streets in June! lol His clipped wings making him easy prey.

But I am wrong! (well, maybe parakeets would not survive, certainly last winter's harsh temps and ever present ice would have seen their demise)
