General News Dear fellow wild parrot fans.

I've created a brief photo essay describing the life and times of my favorite bunch of feathered Brooklynites: the wild monk parakeets of Brooklyn College.

Although New York is a city that prides itself as being "in the know", I'm amazed at how many people regard the Brooklyn feral parakeets as "urban legends", at least until they see these birds up-close-and-personal!

General News While visiting Mannheim, Germany (near Heidelberg) last May (04) we were surprised to find a large flock of feral Alexandrine Ringneck parrots nesting at the Schwetzingen Castle park.
Our friend in Mannheim says they often visit his walnut trees, and chase little birds away from his feeder. He mentions they wake him up rather frequently as well.
Apparently the cold temperatures are not a problem for this hardy species!
If you go, be sure to take your binoculars!
