A group of Quaker parrots that live in Edgewater may need to find a new home after the borough removes several trees where they nest, The Record reports.
S.P. Sullivan/NJ.com

EDGEWATER — For nearly four decades, Edgewater has made an unlikely home for a colony of exotic birds. But some residents are worried that some recent tree trimming may put an end to their stay.
The Record reports that the borough has recently begun removing many of the trees where the group of Quaker parrots (also known as Monk parakeets) nest along Route 5. The moves have caused a stir among locals, who have grown attached to the birds over the years.
"Coming in with chainsaws and cutting down these trees that hold so much life….is irresponsible," Michelle Lynn Schotanus told the paper.
Borough Administrator Greg Franz sought to ease concerns by assuring residents the birds would settle again nearby - just as they have been forced to in the past when storms or utility crews disturbed their nests.
Franz also said that not all residents are fond of the birds, and that he receives numerous complaints about the noise level they create.
