Parrots in Chicago & Northbrook
Stephen Pruett-Jones presents the fascinating story of how monk parakeets arrived and settled in Chicago. Stephen is a faculty member at the University of Chicago and studies the biology and behavior of birds. He has studied the parakeets in Chicago since 1988.
Following the lecture, we will meet rescued parrots now living at a Northbrook parrot sanctuary. Rich and Karen Weiner, founders of Rescue the Birds, will discuss the perils and pleasures of keeping exotic birds as pets.
