Parrot-Like Creatures Invading New York City Subway System (Part 2)
We've written before about New York's flocks of wild parrots invading the city's subway system, and this latest photograph, from an informative subway-oriented site called subchat.com, provides new proof of the parrots' latest incursions. This photo, posted by a subchat member known as "G1Ravage," was taken at the Queensborough Plaza station in Queens, NY. It's not clear to me whether the Quaker Parrot perched on the rail is a wild bird or an escapee (look closely at the photo -- is that a leg band on the parrot's right foot?).
(Note: 8/26: It appears that the parrot in this photo is actually a Peach-Faced Love Bird, not a Quaker. What a Love Bird would be doing in the subway system is beyond me; I suppose he just got away and is hoping to be reunited with his owner).
