What are the odds of there being an escaped Indian ringneck and an escaped
Alexandrine parrot in the same area  at the same time?

In my area one or the other seems to be around for roughly a month every two years. So that gives a probabilty of about 0.2% of both being around in a particular month.

The chances would depend on things like the numbers of aviarists and whether pet shops have been promoting these potentially invasive species m in your area.

And where do you live?  I didn't notice it on the postings.
