I noted that Mark Carter reported that there are Rose-ringed and
Alexandrine Parrots around Alice Springs.  I assume folks know that these
types of non-native parrots are very very successful survivors.  In the UK
and other parts in Europe there is a major call for culling now as they
have become super abundant.  I wonder how Aus is handling the potential
problem they may create.  Can anyone fill me in?

Thanks folks!
