Happy Ending (so far) for Wild Parrots in Edgewater NJ

This was sent to me today from George Sommers:

“More feral Quaker news: Edgewater, NJ Environmental Commission head Karen Reide, her husband Bruce the vice chair and parrot expert Alison Evans-Fragale teamed up with Joe Casimiro of Newark’s Power Concrete Co.The company had been contracted to clean and repair the Hendricks Causeway Bridge in Ridgefiled, NJ which coincidentally had become the unlikely setting for several feral Quaker parrot nests. Casimiro had his workers build 4X4 plywood boxes on two nearby unused utility poles. The original nests were cleared off the bridges before any eggs were laid, and the parrots happily adapted to the new arrangement. (Thanks for the news tip to Mass. Cage Bird Association; via Record columnist Mike Kelly.)”

    That’s great news. Thanks for the update! It’s really so easy for people to live with these wonderful,fascinating birds, and vice versa, if people would just take the time to understand their ways. Alison has worked so tirelessly to save them. This is such postive news.
