From: Michael Sequeira E-mail: Question/Comment: 8/18/14- There is a large nest on Ogden rd in west Islip with approximately 8 to 10 birds

From: Michelle E-mail: Question/Comment: 8/22/14 - We have about 25 parrots that have moved in to our backyard about toe weeks ago. We live in massapequa, south of Merrick toad in biltmore shores.

From: Alan Lapidus. 8–23–14 E-mail: Question/Comment: Just saw about a dozen of those green parrots fly right over my vehicle on a street about a block south of Merrick Rd. in Bellmore just adjacent to a Hess station. Thought I was still experiencing the after effects of the brown acid I took at Woodstock, but the guy in the car behind me stopped to look also (and I don’t remember seeing him during Jimi’s set) so I guess I wasn’t seeing things after all. Gives a whole new meaning to the word “anomaly”. A real tropical treat up here in snow country. Couple holder monkeys short of a trip to Costa Rica, but I’ll take it

From: James Mott E-mail: Question/Comment: 8/1/14 - This is the first year here in South Massapequa that I have heard and see the parrots. They are very noisy and seem to be everywhere. They are tough to see in my maple trees. I hope this won’t be detrimental to other species of birds.
