I should think that the reason that foreign species of parrots fail to
become established in Australia is that all the niches that parrots can
occupy in Australia (including urban pest niches) are already occupied by
Australian parrot species. Also competion for nest-holes muct be intense,
what with native Australian parrots, and Mynahs, Starlings &c.
