Fabulous Pictures of Queens Conures

On April 14th Dave asked:
Subject: Parakeet sighting in Queens — not Monk Parrots

Hello,

Today I discovered eight birds in a cherry blossom tree just off St. John’s campus in Queens.  They don’t look like the other pictures of Monk Parakeets from the internet, though, so I’m sending you some of my pictures for your expert opinion.  Thanks for your time, and I look forward to your reply.

Dave, you are right, those aren’t Quakers, those are our legendary Queens Conures. Fabulous pictures by the way! More on Queens Conures…and check out the sidebar on the right of this site to follow them on Twitter!

    This are actually cherry headed conures, native to South America. They have a life span in the wild of close to fifty years. These are beautiful picture! Thanks so much for posting them.
