Parrot nest!

February 13th, 2013

And a parrot! (It's sitting on top of the railing above the nest.) Brooklyn is more famous for its little green Quakers, but there are plenty up here in the Bronx, too. This nest in the Throggs Neck Houses (two g's!) is located almost two miles from the known parrot stronghold of Pelham Bay Park.

UPDATE: It turns out that wild parrots have been living in Throggs Neck for some time. Their main colony in the area is about three-quarters of a mile away at the Little League ball fields.

    AKA Monk Parakeet. I have seen them in Baldwin, Long Island, nesting on sports field lighting.
