Parakeets

I stopped by Green-Wood Cemetery in this week to visit the locally famous parakeets.

This group flew over and landed by me, sat and squawked for a while, and then flew deeper into the cemetery.

Monk parakeets have been around Brooklyn for about forty years; the colony at Green-Wood is one of the largest in the city.

Are we a native species? How so?

Monk parakeets, in Brooklyn NY? While cuties and that crap, they are a non native species and need to be removed before upsetting native species.
