10. They are so pretty and loud!

It's their sound that gets my attention because it's so different from any of the native birds.

Wild parrots can be spotted in Phoenix neighborhoods

Excerpts:

Clark has been tracking lovebird colonies on his website since the 90s.

He said the colonies were most likely started by two big lovebird releases in the 80s. One was an aviary in Apache Junction that released around 100 birds when it was destroyed by a monsoon.

Clark said the other was an aviary in the North Valley where the owner simply threw open the doors when he decided he didn't want the birds anymore.

~snip~

"They are all over Scottsdale. They are all over central Phoenix, and now they're all over Ahwatukee," Clark said.

Technically, they're an invasive species Clark said it's okay to enjoy them because they don't seem to bother the native birds.
