Local Parrot Nests Being Dismantled

Today Nick writes:

“Unfortunately it looks like LIPA has destroyed or removed more parrots nests – last week I noticed 2 nests on S Strong Ave in Lindenhurst just north of Montauk Hwy were gone – fortunately, they didn’t touch the one further east. On the brighter side I have been seeing more nests in trees –  in Amityville there is one in the top of a pine tree across from the tower and one in a tree just left of that one.”

It is good these birds are adapting, as they are much safer from human intervention if they simply stay in the trees. Although I have witnessed nests ‘abruptly’ disappearing literally overnight, I do have to say I am not sure if LIPA is behind it or not. Some people find the birds noisy and irritating and knock the nests down, while others actually get it into their heads to try and capture them and either keep them as pets or sell them. VERY bad idea by the way on both counts, as birds bred in the wild will never be tamed, in fact, they will only be miserable.

    I live on W. Riviera drive in Lindenhurst…..the parrots are now setting
    up home close to my house, since I see them eating the mulberrys off my neighbors tree. I would like to build a large birdhouse to put on my deck. Does anyone know how or what kind would attract them….

    They will come to any type of standard birdfeeder and eat the wild bird seed and are especially fond of sunflower seeds.
