Milling about the backyard this morning, some birds were making a ruckus. I couldn't identify them by their sounds and soon I found out why. I'd seen em on a fly by once in a while, one or a pair. This morning, there were over a dozen and possibly as many as twenty, screeching an carrying on. Got out the old Canon and stuck the telephoto on her.

Cheers







A couple after a deluge on Memorial day:

There's a flock of Monk Parakeets that live in my neighbor hood near downtown Houston. They make a lot of ruckus.

Hope you don't mind, I lightened up the first photo a bit. I have never seen the parrots or parakeets around here.

I see flocks of them flying up and down the coast when I'm at my buddy's place in San Leon. It's pretty neat.

Those things fly all around Austin, I see them on riverside dr. Seeing a neon green bird fly across the road will catch your attention.

There are a bunch in Del Valle. They are quite large, too. We have some in the radio tower where I work. One night an owl paid a visit! You should've heard the ruckus!

That's cool, there's thousands of green parakeets down in McAllen. They roost by the lowes on dove street if anyone ever goes down there it's quite the show. All the power lines lined up and trees full of em. They load up in the trees just like grackles do. Had some videos of em on an old phone, but I don't I can find anything now. Starting to become quite the nuisance down there for all the fruit tree farmers.
