9 threatened animals of the Southeast:: Puerto Rican parrot
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Southeast
The statement about the Puerto Rican parrot being the only parrot species remaining in the U.S. is erroneous - the endangered thick-billed parrot, living in the white mountains area of Arizona is another species.
Not true...there are parrots living under an overpass in Chicago, Illinois and also in the Hyde Park Area. They are green and numerous. Look them up if you don't believe me. They have pictures of them on You Tube. I think they also live in New York City somewhere.
