BREAKING NEWS: New York City Council Will Soon Vote on Wild Parrot Protection...

BREAKING NEWS: New York City Council Will Soon Vote on Wild Parrot Protection...

A "little bird" has told me that the New York City Council will soon vote on Resolution No. 1872-2009. This measure, which was introduced last year and discussed on this site, will afford New York City's wild parrots some basic protections against predation by obliging "the City to take all possible steps to humanely relocate Quaker parrots that have nested on city-owned properties that are slated for demolition or removal or where other projects require removal of the birds."

Thanks again to Council Members Tony Avella, Annabel Palma, and James Vacca for moving this resoluton forward. The wild parrots of New York thank you!

WCBS-TV Covers Wild Parrots of Brooklyn

I got a call a few weeks back from Stephanie Cassell, a WCBS-TV producer I've worked with before. I went out to Green-Wood Cemetery and met Stephanie, a nice cameraman, and reporter Tony Tantillo. We were lucky that it was a nice day and the parrots were out in force: here's the resulting story which ran on WCBS-TV's web site on Thursday. You can watch a video from this page that shows you the complete sequence that ran over the air: I think that WCBS did a great job with this piece.
