Video Clip: Quaker Parrots Evacuate Nest and Sound Alarm
I was testing out my new 5X teleconverter extension on Sunday. The afternoon was gloomy so this video is a bit dark. Still, I captured a short scene involving two wild Brooklyn Quakers who were carefully eyeing the motion of a nearby predator. They watch calmly, but then their expression changes as they sense a situational change in the tactical air environment. Seizing the moment, they fly off noisily, announcing to the rest of the flock that they are "coming in."
