I noticed this flock of squawking parakeets last March- about 20-25 of them. I guess they were getting ready to migrate north for the winter because I did not see them again until October. A small flock has been flying around the area. They are easy to spot because they are noisy and they have long tails. They landed on a Notro tree next door and it looked as if they were eating the red flowers though they mostly eat seeds, nuts, and small fruit.These pictures were taken with permission from Arthur Grosset’s Birds website that has pictures that he has taken all over the world.

The southernmost parakeet in the world
They nest in cracks and crevices in trees- looks a little tight in there!
