I have started this blog as an extension to my Wild Parrots in the New York Metro Area awareness website. This should provide a convenient way for folks to report the latest sightings, keep updated on current events,  as well as add comments.

    About a month ago we were driving N along the HH Pkwy and I saw a bright green bird about the size of a pigeon, probably around 125th street. All I could think of was “Parrot!” but didn’t realize they even lived in the area, let alone that they were so commonplace in the NYC area. Everyone thought I was crazy, this blog proves I’m not!

    I saw a whole flock of what may be wild parrots this morning in North Bergen, NJ, along the Hudson River (by Palisades Medical Center). They were vibrant green with a streak of cobalt blue on the wing. What a surprise!

    Hello! I saw a parrot twice today in the same spot in Harlem along the Hudson bike path. It looks like a quaker and flew over me as I sat watching a few hours ago. This morning I saw it sitting in the top of a conifer on my way to work. I’m hoping it will be a regular fixture in my commute!

    So happy to have found this blog…. In New Rochelle , NY , Davenport area, a flock of greenish yellow parrots landed in the tree right before my eyes…..exciting to hear their squawking as the flew away.

    Hi there, just spotted a flock on Ditmars and 28th Street in Astoria, Queens. So weird randomly seeing parrots!

    Just dropped my son off at daycare – on my way in I saw 3 of these parrots fly by squawking rather loudly. I thought I was seeing things! Welcome to the neighborhood! (Malverne, NY) I hope to see them again soon.

    I have bird feeders in my yard and last week two of these guys stop by for a bite needless to say I was very excited this week four of them stopped by to eat. I would like to to get a special blend for them but I’m not sure if there is one. Does anyone know of one?

    Just surfing and offhand entered a search on a visitor that showed up here in Randolph,NJ (20 some miles due west of the GW Bridge) early last summer. We have several feeders in our back yard and enjoy the visits of many different types. One day we spotted a green bird that seemed to have arrived with a small group of titmice. We thought he/she may be a local escapee. We were surprised and pleased when he became a frequent visitor. We dubbed him Perry (figuring him to be a parakeet). We have 8 hanging grain feeders, 3 thistle socks and 3 hanging suet cages. He visited all but the suet. With Fall coming on the visits were less frequent and he would disappear for several days. We kept track of him until a last sighting sometime in November. I’m getting on in years and haven’t been able to keep up with all the feeders what with the raiders-squirrels,starlings and grackles requiring filling every other day or so. Spring is close though.

    All this leading up to the question: Can we hopefully expect to see Perry back ?

    Hi, if it was indeed a wild parrot as discussed on this blog he has a few companions and they will feed year round and especially in the winter months when their natural go-to’s are less plentiful. A single bird does not fit their normal pattern and may have indeed been an escapee. I hope you see him again!
