Questions about birds I answered on Quora the week of 3/13/17
Do power lines affect the health of birds, when they perch on them?
I can’t speak to power lines but I know that Quaker parrots are colonial animals. They build large nests where a whole colony can live enabling them to survive brutal Chicago winters.
A heat source they seek out and build their nests in is electrical transformers. CommEd has access to a number of Quaker rescues who will come and get the birds when requested.
