I doubt this bird is protected by law, since it's not naturally occurring, but I'd check.  My own view would be this bird should be rescued.  There are plenty of parrot adoption organizations, I think.  Ultimately, it will be better for the bird, as it is doomed at your latitude.  Red-crowned Parrot is very intelligent, and I kept one and can say they make wonderful pets, but need someone able to devote the necessary time, because they are highly intelligent and it would be cruel to place it in a home without proper care.  -Ken Archambault, Birmingham, Alabama

Parrots are long-lived birds.  Eventually, they will die.  That is why determination of the establishment and sustainability of parrots takes so long. An escaped flock could live for decades but never reproduce.
