A long-standing urban legend about the origins of long-lived Parganas in the British Isles has finally been alienated by new research from the Universities of Goldsmith and Queen Mary.
According to the BBC reported that rose-ringed parakeets are native to Africa and also the Indian subcontinent was released into the wild in the early 1930’s when public health got to panic about psychosis – a potentially fatal infection passed from birds to humans. – Praise the country.
For few years, few believed that non-native birds were introduced into the country ecosystem by the noted yank rock guitarist Jimmy Hendrix, who allegedly sold a pair of parakeets named Eve and Adam in 1968 to London. Swinging was released in Carnaby Street.
The U.K. Another popular rumour about the prevalence of parrots in India stems from the filming of the 1951 adventure film The African Queen. Parts of that film were lensed at Isleworth Studios in west London, and an urban legend said the crew released birds from the set at their rap party.
“Slightly less glamorous, another theory claims that the birds survived an aviary at Sion Park when it was damaged by debris from an aircraft in the 1970s or during the 1987 ‘Great Storm’ The damage was said to be from a wide range of unspecified aviary. ” the study.
The research study used spatial analysis to examine the veracity of claims that were plotting bird sightings on city maps over time. He discovered that no verifiable list had been shown to have been seen in either Carneby Street or Isleworth.
Instead, the study determined that birds were introduced into wild populations, possibly from multiple small releases. A British newspaper report in 1932 saw Parasites with the publication of several stories about the psyche. The study noted that another example of the “parrot flu” in 1952 could influence people to leave their pets.
Researchers expanded their investigation deadline in the 19th century, using the British Newspaper Archive to find mention of bright green birds. The study found that wild parakeets were seen as wild until 1855 before Hendrix brought his musical performances to the British Isles.
The study noted that rose-ring parietes have become a successful invasive species in 34 countries on five continents. According to the National Audubon Society website, they have wild herds in California and parts of Florida.
