Hello, tweeters. Those of you interested in seeing photos of some of the
famed Seattle 7 (or is it 8 or 9 or 10?) can find them at this site:

If anyone comes up with a definitive answer, let us all know. I still
think the photos point toward Scarlet-fronted Parakeet, but it's not
impossible that hybridization was involved. The first photo seems to show
traits from two species, in fact.
