Three Amigos

Occasionally we have a small flock of parrots arrive in the courtyard here at Boston Manor, but today we had a very large flock and a very loud one.



They are almost impossible to see amongst the green leaves, but I was able to get some pictures of three friends perched together.




These three seemed to be interested in me as I took some pictures of them.



Sitting together, squawking and cleaning each other.


They have been outside making the biggest racket for a few hours now.

These are Magnolia trees (I believe) and they love the seeds - I must get a picture of them, they are bright red, no wonder they attract these funny birds.

Of course I must share with you, my friends....





Apparently we are living in a jungle!!

Happy week ahead!

That is a raucous sound. I think it might drive me a little nuts! Do the Bostons pay attention to them?
LOL! I love rottrover's comment!!

"The mighty jungle sleeps tonight" ~ not. The four legged folks were not " talking" about this ? Do you get lots of these ?

It reminded me of El Valle one of the places were they winter down in Panama. Great blog, now everybody knows what they sound like. Good news is , they do no stay too long.

Got to love rottrover's comment, if they only knew the truth. :-) That is a magnolia from what I can see of the seed pods. That noise would drive me nuts, too, but the birds are pretty. Have a good week. CG

This was interesting, Ann, and they certainly are loud. They remind me somewhat of crows, with their comfort level, and noise. and you know I love crows.

So loud! I totally read patriots and was thinking who is visiting? LOL

Sue said...

When the parrots are here in Old Towne, I swear they fly in groups of a hundred plus! They are quite vocal so loud! But they are also so cool to watch!

Take care,
Sue

I wonder if these are Ring Necked parakeets? Do they have a rose ring? We have them all along The Thames here in England, apparently they escaped in Victorian times and have been living in the wild. VERY loud! x
