Friday's Feathers: Monks

Today's Friday's Feathers belong to: The Monk Parakeet

"Bernie, quit horsing around and get over here!"

These are Monk Parakeets, also known as Quaker Parakeets. They're fairly common and apparently pretty popular as pets. Which cracks me up whenever I see one in my local Petco. I can't help but think of the dozen or so that come around here each day, wild and free. For free. Okay, maybe for a little bird seed.

Happy Friday, everyone!

We see those pretty birds when I go out in my stroller! They are noisy.

At first glance I thought these were budgerigars. They are a beautiful parrot. wonderful choice for Friday's Feathers. (I'm late here because we have been having huge thunderstorms which have blocked our satellite reception. Thank goodness for blogs with pre-posting)
