Various and Sunday). There were about 12 of them, and they make this funny crackling noise while they eat.
The first time I ever encountered them on a bush eating berries like this was in Los Angeles--I came around a corner with Tallulah Mae's predecessor, Elektra, and there they were, dozens of them, in a bush. It took my breath away.
These parrots are legendary in Southern California. We saw and heard them in L.A., and I see/hear them every day here in SD. We lived in L.A. during the 1994 Northridge earthquake, which struck around 4:30 a.m. It was a ferocious quake, and of course it knocked electricity out. As the sun came up on a dark and quiet city, the first sign of life we heard was a flock of wild parrots flying overhead. It was, somehow, very reassuring.
By the way, those photos above are straight out of the camera--no enhancements needed when you're that beautiful!
