Monk Parakeets visting the platform feeder in the backyard...

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.
