in search of wild parrots

2.5 hours walking yesterday: 1 hour at lunch and 1.5 hours in search for wild parrots on the Hudson River Greenway with a friend of mine.  She'd spotted the nest the day before and wanted to show somebody just to prove she wasn't seeing things.  She said it was a big nest; she wasn't kidding.  Turns it's not just a bird or two; it's a colony.  We found a video about it this morning, and I was hoping to embed it here but am having a heck of a time figuring it out, so here's the link.  Pretty cool.

There are apparently quite a few of these little guys in Brooklyn but these are the first in a long time in Manhattan.  You can find out more about Brooklyn Parrots on their Facebook page (yes, they have one).
