Parrots Spotted in Merrick

Today Chris observed the following:

“On 5/28/2013 at approximately 10:00 AM I witnessed a group of 6-8 mature size Quaker parrots flying from West to East on Merrick Road, in Merrick, NY (11566).
They appeared to be agitated, as they made quite a bit of noise. They stopped for roughly two minutes and then began to head East again with great speed.
I am amazed at the tenacity of these birds, as I witnessed them as a young child and then again in my twenties.
I view them as an omen. Not as good or bad, but as an indicator of belief.
You may rub your eyes, you may doubt your ears, but those are real birds.
Thousands of miles from their ancestral home, doing what birds do.”

They likely weren’t agitated Chris; noisy is their natural state and you’ll generally always be able to hear them before you see them. ;^}
