This video segment from WILD TV investigates wild parrots that live in Brooklyn in New York City. There are various theories as to how these parrots have come to live wild in the city. Parrots typically live in the much warmer climates of South America, and it must be difficult for them to survive the colder winter temperatures in the Northeast United States. Scientists are observing the parrots and recording where they nest, what they eat and any other behaviors. Neighbors say the green parrots are loud, but generally the people enjoy having them around.
