Brooklyn Parrots Make Their Way to Coney Island

No, we don't note every appearance of Monk Parrots in a new spot in Brooklyn. But, when someone posts pics of the birds in Coney Island, we think it's post-worthy. This picture was posted by The Great Fredini on the Coney Island Message Board. He wrote: "We saw 5 of Brooklyn's wild parrots hanging out in This tree near the Surf & Turf Grill. I've seen them before in Manhattan Beach or near Brooklyn College, but never in Coney Island. I think its a good omen for 2008!" That would place the birds near Surf Avenue, a block from the beach.
