Able to survive in colder climates than most parrots, flocks of these colorful escaped pets show up in the strangest places—like New York and Chicago! Also called Quakers, these birds are mostly green with a patch of gray on their breast and blue tails and wingtips.
White-faced Scops Owl
With their bright orange eyes set in white faces, white-faced scops owls, also called northern white-faced owls, have an entrancing gaze. They roost in trees during the day, and hunt by night. With their long, trilling call—a fluty “ploo pluuu”—white-faced scops owls sound a bit like American screech owls. But the scops owls are native to Africa, living between the fringes of the savannah and the Equator.
