Breeding Season Is Underway!

I’ve received a few emails in recent weeks as the parrots have become highly visible while they’re working on their nests. Breeding season generally runs from April to September, so if you see a nest that may be in jeopardy keep in mind that while the adults can quickly rebuild in another location, if there are eggs, babies or fledglings in the nest they have no way to get to safety. This is at the heart of the power company issue – that the nests could be disassembled but it’s best to wait until at least October.

There have been some success stories where private owners have built their own platforms in order to entice the parrots away from a potentially dangerous situation. Detailed instructions for building this type of platform are available here.
