Brooklyn's Monk Parakeets

I haven't posted anything about them recently, but I have mentioned Brooklyn's Monk Parakeets in past postings. Probably the largest, or at least most upscale, colony nests within the spires at the entrance to Green-Wood Cemetery. I thought you'd enjoy this video that I found on YouTube:



The annual Christmas Bird Count in Brooklyn is being held this Saturday. For a change, we have a decent sized team for Floyd Bennett Field, Dead Horse Bay and Four Sparrow Marsh. I'm optimistic that I'll have some interesting things to report on Sunday.
