A group of colorful birds have taken up residence in Saginaw.
An NBC DFW employee saw these green quaker parrots outside of the city's police station and snapped some pictures.
A local vet said the birds are native to South America, but are now commonly found in the U.S. because people buy them as pets and then release them into the wild.
"Some states have actually banned having quaker parrots because they can damage the crops and become a problem with the farmers in the area," said Dr. Russell Johnston, Chisholm Ridge Pet Hospital.
The birds cost between $50 and $200. Johnson said people should not try and domesticate any birds they find in the wild.
