From: Janet Verdi E-mail: Anystring@aol.com Question/Comment: 10/4/14 - Have been hearing loud squawking the past couple of mornings. This morning to my surprise there was a small flock of small parrots outside on the telephone wire. Very cool to see them in West Islip!

From: Jim Finn E-mail: Sharky7@optonline.net Question/Comment: 9/21/14 - There is a very large wild parrot nest on the utility pole corner of ripple water and South Bay drive in nassau shore Massapequa NY. Every morning they leave the nest shortly after sunrise. Odd sounding

From: Lisa Worme E-mail: DayDreamr888@gmail.com Question/Comment: 9/25/14 - Spotted Wild Parrots in Massapequa NY on Broadway. Seven loud squawkers announced themselves and appeared to be considering taking up residence on an electrical pole outside a laundromat. One of them fussed for a while with a thin stick.

From: Skip Della Porte E-mail: Regfixer@hotmail.com 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: Michael Sequeira E-mail: 6ogden@optonline.net 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: Hellerconsulting04@yahoo.com 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: Moegreene@verizon.net 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
