Monk Parakeets, have been showing up quite frequently in the backyard. A few days ago, I heard a ruckus being made by a number of parakeets and saw them chasing a Cooper's Hawk. While I have seen Crows and Starlings mob hawks, this was the first time I saw Parakeets demonstrating the same behavior.
Here are some photos of Monk Parakeets in the backyard.

An affectionate moment.
