Parrots sighted in Island Park

Harvey reports:

I’VE HEARD ABOUT THE PARROTS IN THE AREA OF THE SOUTH SHORE OF L.I. BUT UNTIL TODAY HAVEN’T SEEN ANY. THIS MORNING I WENT TO MY LOCAL BANK AND TO MY SURPRISE, APPROX. 6 OR MORE OF THESE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GUYS WERE FEEDING, ON THE PAVEMENT OF THE LIRR PARKING LOT AT THE ISLAND PARK STATION. THEY WERE, FOR THE MOST PART, UNDER A TREE WHICH, APPARENTLY, WAS DROPPING SEEDS. FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES, I WAS TREATED TO A VERY PLEASANT SIGHT, IN A SOMEWHAT DRAB SURROUNDING. I HOPE TO SEE THEM AGAIN SOON! THEY WERE AN UNEXPECTED TREAT.

Thanks for letting us know! I don’t think I’ve ever heard of them reported in this part of Nassau.

    Spotted at least 50 of them at Tanner Park in Copiague last Saturday morning, 10/27. They were on the ground inside the dog run that is until my dog chased the whole lot. A group then headed northeast toward Lindenhurst.

    The parrots have a nest at Shell Creek Park in Island Park, NY. They are on top of the lights on the baseball field and seem to be sharing it with an osprey nest next door!! Amazing co-habitation
