We have a flock – or more likely several flocks – of feral parakeets in town. I saw these two going after the sunflowers in someone’s front yard.

Mostly green - two green birds perched on the back of a mature sunflower stalk with broad leaves, leaning over to get at the seeds.

Sometimes I’ll hear the squawking of the feral parakeets that live in town as they fly past.

Sometimes I’ll hear the squawking of the feral parakeets that live in town as they fly past. Usually I don’t have a camera with me, but one time I managed to catch four of them flying (not very detailed, as you can see), and once I managed to catch one that had stopped in a palm tree long enough for me to use the zoom lens.

I spotted some of these feral parrots in the grocery store parking lot today.

Two of these parakeets flew across the grocery store parking lot into a palm tree, squawking as they went. I could only spot one of them once they’d settled, but I managed to get almost a dozen photos of it while it sat there.

Is that Feral Parakeet Giving me the Bird?
