We stopped by Railroad Avenue in Ridgefield to look in on the Monk
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).
