Back in the 1970s i was in Leticia, Colombia. The exporters there had continued collecting parrots in spite of a USA import ban. They thought it would be short term. When they found it would continue, they released several hundred parrots. The parrots would go out and forage during the day and come back into town to roost in trees. It was fairly spectacular.
