Green Parakeets in McAllen

McAllen is one of the best places in The Valley to see Green Parakeets. You don't want to spend a long time hoping to stumble upon them in residential neighborhoods, so the best way to see them is to hit their traditional evening roosts at 10th and Violet Streets. The birds gather on the wires and parking lot trees here outside the Hastings book store, and put on quite a show as they fly around squawking before bedtime. There were easily over 150 birds there the evening we visited right at sundown.
