This year, I will be posting from time to time about the Parrots of East Boston. The birds are called Quaker Parrots. The first time I saw them I was so sure that someone had just opened their window and let pet birds fly out. I was so mad, I called the local news people to come out and do a news story on them. I was told to contact the local bird rescue people in RI, which I did. I then got my first education about the Quaker Parrots. They were not pet birds, but wild birds. This is the nest our birds have built. Last year, the pair had a successful hatch of two babies. Over the past winter, I have only seen 3 of the birds surviving. These birds first showed up in the Fall of 2009, and as you can imagine, have caused quite the stir. Here is their nest. In time, I will try to get a picture of the birds, but with the little hand held camera I have, not sure it will be possible. They do not stay still for very long.
