Apologies for all the animal photos recently - I'm feeling a bit under the weather. Hopefully the coming weekend will provide some nice recuperation.
Meanwhile, here's another story about animals in New York:
Believe it or not, Brooklyn is known for flocks of wild parrots. Mark and I see them at feeders in our neighborhood. Yes, parrots, those sociable green birds you imagine hanging out in tropical forests. How they manage to survive our winters is a mystery, but the parrots are here, and they are flourishing.
Brooklyn Parrots is a website dedicated to the wild parrots in Brooklyn. The site presents dramatic photos of the birds in flight, as well as loads of historical information.
In fact, you can attend safaris with blog's author Steve Baldwin. Steve conducts tours around Brooklyn, tracking the parrots in their favorite haunts. The next safari is on March 14th and will tour through Brooklyn College and the Greenwood Cemetery.
Do check out this lovely site if you can, here.
