Wild Parrots Update in Flushing

On July 25 Sheila reported:

“Just would like to give you all an update on these beautiful birds. A flock of these wild parrots landed in our backyard here in Flushing about 4 days ago. What a thrill! They are a joy to watch & listen to. Sounds like they’re gossiping up there in the trees all day long. Some of our neighbors don’t find them amusing because of their constant talking. We hope they will stay for a time!”

    Lisa from Massapequa wrote to ask: Hi! About 10 days ago, my husband and I started noticing beautiful green parrots flying around our neighborhood. What drew our attention to them was the constant shrieking!

    We were concerned about their survival this coming winter, but now I see from this blog that they have been here for many, many years. How do they survive?

    I guess the short answer to that is that parrots have formidable nests made of sticks where they live in colonies, which are impervious to most wind and weather. During the summer there is usually plenty to eat, however, over the winter the birds are largely reliant on outdoor feeders. They are actually documented in much harsher climates such as Chicago!

    I saw three parrots fly by near La Guardia. They appeared to be in good feather condition, with long narrow tails, possibly Ring Necks.
