Wild Parrots Spotted in Larchmont, NY

A correspondent in Larchmont, New York reports that at least a dozen wild parrots were seen yesterday flying over the Larchmont Yacht Club in the direction of Cedar Island.

My correspondent did not confirm the species of these parrots but I presume that they are Quakers because a large population of Quakers has lived in nearby New Rochelle for a long time, and the parrots have been spotted before in the vicinity of Glen Island.

Wild Quaker Parrots (AKA Monk Parakeets) have established themselves along the western coast of Long Island Sound in the past twenty years, from the Bronx all the way up to New Haven, Connecticut.
