#132 – survival story

This story - not just NPR's creepy detachment from reality - is true! Greenwood Cemetery in Sunset Park is the highest point in Brooklyn, and (as far as I know) is still a home to quaker parakeets. Their nests are something to behold. I was enamored by the longevity and general mischief of these birds. Steven C. Baldwin wrote about the birds on his blog when I first drew this comic, and he still does, in addition to hosting birdwatching tours. His stories about the plight and beauty of these birds was my inspiration for this chapter.
