New visitor


We had a new visitor recently. This is the first time we have had a parrot at the feeders. He was trying desperately to get at the peanuts. There were two of them perhaps a pair. During the summer months there are a whole bunch of them in the near by trees but they seem to move away during the winter months. Since it has been fairly warm they are still around.

Then I spotted this little fellow having a power nap:-) I was watching him for a little while and wondering why he was so still and not moving when I saw his head nod :-) he looked so cute. But after about 5 minutes he got up ran down the tree went about his busy business:-) can you spot him in the tree?

  1. Lucky you! Parrots in your area. I would love that! I know that both Pasadena and San Francisco have wild parrots - not sure where else in So Cal.

    1. In the summer we see a lot of them here and in the winter they retreat to the near by woods I think.

  2. Is he a ring necked parakeet? I know they are quite common in the SE now.

    I can see the power napper :)

  3. The din a flock of them must create :p so odd knowing you get wild parrots in this country, well down south at least :p

  4. They do surprise me every time I see them because I associate them with the tropics. But they don't seem too noisy from where I can see them , but I am not sure how the people take it on whose trees they nest.

  5. I would be delighted to have either of those visitors but to have them both – wow! I used to see a lot of squirrels at our last house but none here. I do love to see them. Thanks for sharing the photos.

  6. I wonder why you don't get them Barbara. You live in a fairly rural area so I would have thought there would be many. Perhaps there are more of other predators hence they don't come there. They are so interesting to watch

  7. How on earth do parrots survive in the winter? I know yours are not as cold as ours...but, it does get pretty darn cold and snowy some years....

  8. Vee they seem to have adapted themselves to this climate so well that they are multiplying
