City Parrots
Description

Wild parrots have been spotted making homes and breeding in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens in New York City, on Long Island and in New Jersey. Although these are unlikely locations to find parrots, which typically make their homes in tropical environments, they have proven they are able to survive the cold winters in the northeastern United States. In this video segment from WILD TV, scientists and bird-lovers track and observe the parrots to determine how they are learning to survive in cities and suburbs.
