Hello.
I hava a question that I Don’t Know how to
Solve, I moved to a new place no to long ago and out of not where I keep seeing some wild parrots ( I don’t consider them wild because is not the typical wild ones and I feel they escaped or someone abandoned them ) I Don’t Know how to help them because I already called the city and they just told me the only thing they can do is destroy their home and that’s all, and I’m really worried because lately there’s a lot storms here in New York and also there’s a hawk that is around the area too, what should I do? I’m really worried for these little buddies and the city don’t seem interested enough to help because “ it is not a life treating thing and no human is in danger” but they are in danger in my opinion, and I will hate to see something happen to them and not be able to do something about it.
Thank you if someone can answer this.

Usually the other 3 birds hide in that nest whenever I get close or try to take a picture

New York has a population of feral Quaker parrots. Going by the photos, I think you're seeing some of these.

The Wild Brooklyn Parrot FAQ – BrooklynParrots.com

These parrots are born in the parrot community, not in captivity. They live much as wild parrots do - foraging, feeding, socialising, building nests, flying and so on. There are feral Indian Ringnecks where I live and I agree that it's jarring to see parrots flying about when we don't expect to see parrots! However, I think these parrots generally enjoy a pretty good life. They get so much more exercise and companionship than most of our captive parrots, and I often see our feral IRNs feed from bird feeders that people put out. It's kind of care about them, but I don't think they're in any more danger than the other birds that inhabit our cities.

Oh ok, I was just worried about that hawk around my home and all of the storms we had lately in New York, I didn’t know what would be the best for them and they are incredibly cute lol they scream at me when they see me because I’m the only weird one around my neighborhood that talks to them Hahahaha

Quakers are considered an invasive species in some states. I don't know what the law is in New York but if they are, it would probably make it illegal to care for them and would mean that wildlife services prob. would not care for them either.

From what I know, they are ok in here in New York but it is sad they think they are a problem :( they are incredible smart and adorable with a lot personality… I feel it is more the fault of the people that buy them unresponsive and then they just abandon them in the wild, of course they would learn/need to survive. I don’t think it is the birds fault? Nope? Or maybe I just love birds too much that I got very angry thinking someone abandoned them :( since my sun conure that I rescued was like that… someone abandoned her in the middle of winter, then my Coworker picked her up and ended up suffering with him too, I took her away from him immediately I knew that … :(
