The Parakeets Are Back!

Actually, they never left. But the tree in front of my window sprouted its annual crop of seed pods this week, which means that the local parakeet population has begun to descend upon it for its annual munch-fest.

This morning I saw three, though only two can be seen clearly in the following photos:

The green-feathered diners at the treetop restaurant are a male and female. The male can be identified by the black ring around the front of his neck, which becomes a pink ring at the sides and in the back.

Wow, look at the lady! She’s eating upside-down!

Welcome back, parakeets! It’s good to see you again. Enjoy your meals!
