I know there are colonies in NY City, Chicago and lots further south, but news to me there are Quaker colonies in Canada along the St. Lawrence. They should adapt easily to the Victoria climate when the move out this way.
Very interesting, I had no idea they were in London! ... And Quakers along the st Lawrence, that seems like a pretty cold winter for them, Victoria would be way easier to live in. It would be neat if they worked their way along to Lake Ontario
Unfortunately for them, that adaptability can make them unpopular. I don't know which native birds they would compete with, but I know the English are very fond of their wild birds. I think the primary concern in the US is that they can threaten crops. Always business, business, business!

Somewhere in all my reading about parrots, I recall mention of some colonies of naturalized Quakers in Norway, another cold climate. They seem to be able to adapt remarkably well. The ones in Brooklyn, New York have become popular residents. The students at Brooklyn College have adopted the ones that live on campus there, and feed them things that we prefer to avoid giving our QPs, like pizza and fast-food french fries.
