Sadly, the law basically sanctions the killing of the birds, even though there are plenty of bird adopters and bird lovers who want to help the birds. So, young birds recovered from nests, along with any eggs inside, are destroyed almost reflexively, as if their lives didn't matter at all. Not only is this process cruel, immoral, and wasteful - it is completely unnecessary.
Current NJ laws list Quaker Parrots as a "potentially dangerous" species, so they are not protected by law, but Alison was determined to work with PSE&G to time nest teardowns during a period when cold temperatures would not kill the birds and when eggs or young would not be present in the nests.
