Hi Steve, thanks for the postings !! After this long cold winter , do you think the quaker population is still healthy. Are they growing in numbers after a few years or are the winters taking a toll on them . I see some people have taken to feeding the birds so they don't mind them around ? I always cringe when I hear New York is getting the storms and cold temps. I feed wild birds during winter here in Ottawa and always hope the little green birds are okay !!!  Cheers

Treacherous NY Winter Fails to Dislodge Wild Parrots From Brooklyn
Today was the first nice Saturday in a long time. But I almost dreaded going outside, because I have neither seen nor heard from Brooklyn's wild parrots for several months. I've seen sparrows, starlings, crows, plenty of gulls, and a few raptors, and all of...
