Pizza parrots!

Two wild parrots on Brooklyn’s Bedford Avenue enjoy some fresh-caught pizza.

With all the hoopla surrounding Pizza Rat, I’d thought I’d add a few photos I snapped a few years back of some wild Brooklyn Parrots (AKA Monk Parakeets/Quaker Parrots) enjoying pizza on Bedford Avenue.

These photos were NOT staged. The pizza slice in question was discarded on the sidewalk. Two parrots on watch saw the slice, they flew over, and air-lifted it into the tree. The slice was shared and largely devoured by the parrots; butĀ oneĀ large fragment was dropped and enjoyed subsequently by a local sparrow.

Thin crust, sauce, and cheese: perfection!

Pizza isn’t unknown in Argentina, but it’s a lot easier to come by in Brooklyn.

Look at this bird’s face. That is one satisfied example of charismatic megafauna!
