Wonder if this could be his bird since he seems to be hanging around the same exact place recently.

Yeah, this little guy is all yellow (and small), although those Edgewater parakeets are pretty cool looking! This one seems very used to humans - he started chirping at me when I whistled at him and was willing to step onto my finger. He was about to but the others flew away and he left to follow them.

Hoping we can find his owner soon! Thanks very much for the tip, cocopele!

Hey all -

Was walking my dog yesterday and noticed a bird playing with a group of wild birds that didn't quite fit with his friends. Was able to get a closer look today and looks to be a parakeet. He is playing with his new friends in the construction site between A Condominiums and that warehouse Mill Creek is renovating on Washington St.

Unfortunately I'm slightly confused (read as I cannot figure out for the life of me) on how to paste/attach photos on here. So please, if you lost this guy or know the person who did, feel free to message me and I can provide the pics I was able to take this morning.

He seems thrilled playing with his new friends but I'm sure he would love to be back in a home just as much, especially with winter lingering somewhere around the corner.

Thanks!
Kristine

Did you know that the parakeets were allowed to colonize Green-Wood because their droppings don't damage the brownstone, unlike that of the pigeons they displaced?

I've seen that parakeet hanging around there as well, it's a yellow one and doesn't look like the packs of parakeets that are in Edgewater/Fort Lee.

If you travel to the area slightly North of Trader Joes in Edgewater, you will see their nests on the electric poles. And they are loud!

Perhaps he wanted to be a downtown peep?

Next time I go up to Trader Joe's I'm going to have to look for the birds!
