I still think they're more effective in the abstract. I may have come to that realization later, but I still really do believe it.

Bunches. Or actually, parakeets, not parrots. Little bright green ones. But mostly not here on the south side of the island -- the parakeets are more rain-foresty kinds of birds, I think, and you see them up in San Juan a lot; I don't recall seeing any here in Ponce. Which doesn't mean they're not here, saying more for my powers of observation. And/or memory.
We laughed when we realized that their neon green coloration is actually camouflage here.
