Another State Comes in with a Sighting

Today, Carol from New Jersey reported:

My family and I are lovers of the Quaker parrots. I’m from Leonia, New Jersey and there are a few nests outside Overpeck Park, and on other streets which are close to my home.

I have a suet feeder which the birds flock to. We’ve had 12 or more parrots at a time chowing down suet. Since I’m retired, I have the time to stock the suet feeder with blocks of suet…. this is one of my favorite hobbies…. to keep the Quakers fed.

We’ve noticed that the birds come to the backyard around November and leave pretty much in the spring/summer months. Much to our surprise they reappear at the
feeder around October/November when the weather begins to have a chill in the air. The suet feeder is really not very large, but I shove a good amount of suet in it daily… they don’t seem to mind waiting for a turn to get closer to the suet!

The Quaker….. yes….quite amazing to watch….. and we do have a great “birds eye view” of the Quaker.
I loved reading your great info about the Quaker….. .Hopefully, our Quaker friends are here to stay.
Have a great day.”

Thank you Carol for the wonderful update. It’s really not surprising at all that the parrots appear when they do. It is during the autumn and winter months that our friends are almost totally reliant on back yard feeders. Sounds like they are in great hands at your place!
