There's more than one species
Monk Parakeets, ring-necked parakeets' cousins native to forests of Brazil and Bolivia, are said to be causing mass destruction to electrical lines by building large nests upon them. These end up causing blackouts from the weight on the pylons and some have even caused fires. Even Defra has stated that they are a hazard to householders due to the droppings below their nests. It is not certain how they came to arrive to the UK but it's believed to be the same reason as the others; released from captivity. Humane methods have been in place since 2011 to remove these birds costing £260,000, despite the RSPB disagreeing that culling is necessary. Others say that threats to National infrastructure will only heighten with the increasing warmer climates in the future. The population of monk parakeets is now down to the last 50 birds.
