George reported today that he saw about a dozen parrots and was kind enough to send along this photo – thanks George!
As a follow up George reported on the 28th: “My mother says they now flock to this tree every morning. The most she has seen at once was 25 parrots, and 4 conures. The sounds they make are amazing.”
This question, along with a great pic came in today from Soledad. And the answer is: you can feed them just standard wild bird seed – you’ll often see them on a feeder with a bunch of other birds. Naturally they like parrot food as well. 🙂
Actually now it is a good time to do it, because while the birds have many other sources of food during the summer months, they are pretty much reliant on feeders over the winter.
Howard reported this today in Nassau County – thanks for the pics!
Today David reported that these guys have returned to Berlin, NY for the second year in a row. Thanks David!

Yep, that would be them. Thanks for sending in the picture!
