The above photo is actually of Quaker Parrots that are flourishing in Brooklyn but one city parrot blog got a tip that the colorful birds have had sightings in Harlem as of recent. About a half dozen parrots have been seen visiting a bird feeder at Lenox and 127th for the past month and this would be the first time that these exotic birds would have been seen in Harlem. Wild parrots have had a rough time setting up in Manhattan since a Washington Heights nest at Riverside Park was apparently destroyed by vandals last year but there has been reports of small colony in the Manhattan Valley section of the Upper West Side (104th and Amsterdam). Before anyone gets too excited, there is also a possibility that the birds of the Harlem sighting might just be the said Manhattan Valley colony making a visit up north.
