After reading Mary Beth Looper and Ben Cacace's reports of four Monk Parakeets on the Yahoo! group ebirdsnyc, I've been trying to find time to see them. The Parakeets are in the block bounded by West 77th Street, West 78th Street, Amsterdam Avenue and Columbus Avenue.
I can confirm that there are four Monk Parakeets. I saw them in two trees on 78th Street, close to Columbus. They were enjoying two budding trees full of berries.
I couldn't find their roost. Before dusk they appeared to go into the center of the block, where there are backyards and gardens, although they could have gone to an adjoining block.
