Parakeet on the move

April 19th, 2015

That's a monk parakeet (a.k.a. Quaker parrot) nest atop the light pole, with a parakeet in flight right above it (zoom in). Brooklyn is the borough best known for its wild parrots, but, as we've seen, there are quite a few here in the Bronx as well. This nest is a couple of miles away from the well-established colony in Throggs Neck.
