Green-Wood Monk Parakeets Rebuilding Nest Empire
I am happy to say that the wild parrots at Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery are rebuilding. The scaffolding over the main gate was removed several weeks ago, and although the parrots are several thousand twigs away from restoring their once extensive nest complexes, early work is underway and several new brand new parrot-constructed chambers should be ready by the onset of the breeding season, which begins in April.
This Flickr slide show shows the parrots feeding on leaf buds, foraging, and beginning reconstruction. It also features some folks from WCBS-TV, who came out today to work on a segment on the parrots. All photos by Stephen Carl Baldwin.
