The above photo is of a fire siren in Ridgefield, which has been taken over for housing by the local Monk Parakeet colony.

We have not been present when the siren has sounded, so perhaps it has been decommissioned.

By the way, recent visits to the colony around 9 a.m. have been mostly unsuccessful. The guy who operates a coffee truck across the street says that the birds leave in the morning and come back around lunch.

Congrats to Mary Kostus for correctly identifying this as a Monk Parakeet nest.
