The plight of wild quakers:

Here in Florida and other states wild quakers are common and numerous. You can see wild quakers in Conneticut, Brooklyn New York and Chicago among other places.

In Florida and many other places quakers are considered a feral pest. Quakers are being killed. Whole nests are gassed while the birds sleep inside. Nests are ripped down during breeding season while filled with babies and egg. One case here in Sarasota involved someone throwing a nest full of babies into a wood chipper. Did the person get arrested or even fined? No!

Wild quaker babies quickly tame into wonderful, bright, loving pet birds. There is no excuse in the world to harm a baby quaker!

They build large nests on powerlines which is a valid concern,they can be noisy and trees where nests are built can look messy if you have no appreciation for the wonders of nature. But there are other alternatives then destroying the wild quakers.

Florida Power and Light have admitted on television they kill quakers. If you are a customer of FPL let them know how you feel about their so called Quaker Management!
