Monk Parakeet

found at Gull Pond around 6:45 pm. Only saw its green back and its white cheek and pinkish bill
when it turned its head. I could find no images of other parrots (in 5 guides) showing white cheek and pinkish bill. Sadly couldn't see breast. (It attracted the curiosity of 3 Orchard Orioles, a Thrasher, a Carolina Chickadee, a Mockingbird, 2 Eastern Kingbirds, a Yellow Warbler as well.) Sorry, reviewer, for the awful picture in the dark (and pouring rain!) Appreciate feedback if mis-ided.
