From: Skip Della Porte E-mail: Question/Comment: 9/5/14 - PSE&G ripped down 3 large nest in Lindenhurst on Strong Ave, Montauk highway and off of Wellwood. They have moved to 2 large trees on either side of the Rivera canal in American Venice just off Montauk highway. I regularly have 10 or more on the wires across from my home on E Clearwater. They fly as a group and squawk as they do. Sounds like a rain forest. I love it.

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
