Last one.
I think I like this one the best.
Wish I would have framed him better.

Neat shots, I like #3 too.
We don't have any wild parrots in my part of the woods, pretty birds (I bet they can get noisy?).

I would be happy to feed one if you could send it my way. Nice shots.

Trust me, you don't want them.
I only had a dozen in the yard today and I won't be encouraging them to return. I'll hide the seed when they're around.
They look nice but I've seen them in flocks of over one hundred and they are the noisiest most annoying bird I know.

Jaynah's right -- one of the last birds you want around in numbers, they're noisy and greedy, plus they're mischievous.

They'll pull up your crops, not to eat, but just for the hell of it -- and they eat your window sills and garden furniture.

They just love chewing on Western Red Cedar.

About 20 years ago a truck crashed with parrots on it and they got out. Here in the Northeast of the US I didn't think they would last one winter. Well like I said20 years later and they are not only here but have multiplied. I can a test to the noise of them all day long,but when the sun goes down they do shut up until morning. Also they build their nest around the electrical transformers (for the warmth)on the telephone poles. So the power company has to come around and clean them off or they start the transformer onfire. Pretty to look at but a pain to live with.
