I live in New Orleans and have seen what I believe to be a small band of these beautiful birds I'd say perhaps eight birds. I used to have a female for a pet when I was in India and she spoke in three different languages. Anyways getting back to the sighting ,I know they were not Monks because Monks do have that parakeet look to them and I've seen thousands of Monks when I lived in Miami. I am positive that what I saw were Ring-necked. I am curious to know if anyone else has seen them? Thanks.
