|The Brooklyn College Athletic Field, due for |
renovation, is home to many wild Monk
Parakeets (AKA Quaker Parrots) nesting
in the light towers.
Brooklyn's own Eagle Newspaper also covered this happy event.
I am overjoyed that Brooklyn College is taking these steps. The wild parrot colony at Brooklyn College is one of the biggest and healthiest in the whole New York area, and it is, of course, where I do my free monthly "wild parrot safaris" for the public. So thanks to an enlightened adminstration, it seems like the wild parrots of Brooklyn will be able to call Brooklyn College their home for a long time to come!
Here's a short video I shot a couple of years back showing the parrots in action.
