I love birds. I love words. Oh, and plants and fungi too.
Do you know about the parrot/parakeet population in and around Seward Park? They've visited my backyard on numerous occasions; they are especially fond of Russian black sunflower seeds in the fall -- they perch on the top of the plant and get on with the business of dining!
Yes, I've heard about them but never seen them. Darnit.
Cool shots! But I'd pass on parrot dive-bombing myself. I live with my wife's yellow-naped Amazon (Pablo); he is very attached to her & really doesn't like most other people--myself included. After all, he's been with her 25 years, whereas I've only been with her 14--an interloper. & he would like to dive bomb me.
Dear Interloper,You are a brave man and an intrepid husband!
