There have been several Ebird reports recently of a small group of Monk Parakeets I believe in Yacolt which is in Clark County.  I have never been one to count parakeets even in California and Arizona which I know do have established populations of several species.
The reason for this post is that while speaking to as salesman at Best Buy today about a possible new projector for WOS, I told him it would need to show pictures of birds well.  He got interested and asked if I knew of the "Parrots" in Shoreline where he lives.  He said there has been a group of at least 5 birds there for 10 years - somewhere in the area of 5th Avenue and 155th.  I showed him photos of Monk Parakeets and he said - yes just like those.
Any info about this?
