parrots in the garden in NJ

Hello all,

How neet would it be to see Wild Quaker Parrots in you garden, like the people in Edgewater New Jersey see.

Seem's that they have lived there for the last 38 yrs. and might have been from a case of parrots in for the pet trade that have broken open in 1967 at Kennedy Airport, and taken up residence in Brooklyn NY, Conneticut, and Edgewater NJ.

They are killing them in Conn. and Jersey also euthanizes the ones they catch.

Why because they said in the 60's they would destroy fruit crops and multiply out of control. 38 yrs later they are still in Edgewater and there population is keept in check by Falcons and Hawks and have not populated out of control like predicted by the state.

If you would like to find out more about them go to All one word and look for the link to sign the online petiton to stop them from euthanizing the beautiful little parrots that are about the size of a robin or bluejay.

your signature and suport is needed to save these little treasure's as NJ will vote on their flock of wild parrots soon.
