Green-Wood Cemetery after the snowstorm
Seth and I finally spotted the elusive (well, elusive to us) monk parrots which nest in the Gothic gate at the 5th Avenue entrance to Green-Wood Cemetery. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good shot of them with my camera. Legend has it, these pretty tropical birds escaped after being shipped to JFK airport from South America back in the 1960s. Now they can be spotted at various locations in the city. Read more, much more, about it at BrooklynParrots.com.
