“The parakeets are resourceful, accidental immigrants. They roost in utility pole transformers that warm them during Brooklyn’s frigid winters, causing innumerable problems for Con Edison. Their stick nests are complicated interconnected series of apartments with separate entrances and garages. Hard to relocate. I see the parakeets when I run. Arcing over hills, or perched in trees overlooking mourners, fanned amidst branches like a colorful firework.”

- “The Parakeet” by Marie-Helene Bertino
