Monk Parakeet Update Part II

We stopped by Railroad Avenue in Ridgefield to look in on the Monk IMG_0938
Parakeets. We saw about 30 of these noisy green birds whiz past their nests on the causeway bridge, squawking the whole time, but only one perched — about 100 yards from the nests (above).

As we returned to our vehicle, an immature Cooper's Hawk flew out of a tree near the roost.

Strange to see snow atop one of the nesting platforms (left).
