There was a nest on Ogden St. off of Higbee Lane in West Islip.  The last photo I took of them at the nest was in September 2016 (see attached).  I have also seen and photographed them at the nest January and February of the same year (2016) when I first learned about them.    I went to pay them a visit on 3/12/17 and the nest was completely gone.  Is there a way I can find out what happened to these parrots who nested there?  I hope their well being was taken into consideration when it was removed.”

It is almost a certainty the birds met with an unfortunate end. Considered a  potential fire hazard, the power company probably dismantled it and often this occurs in the wee hours to avoid public scrutiny. I expect it will be unlikely that you’ll get anyone to tell you what precisely happened and when.

This is the crux of the issue of wild parrots being classified as an invasive species and sadly one of their favorite places to build is what puts them in harms way.
