Friday's Feathers: Canary-winged Parakeets


Today's Friday's Feathers belong to the Canary-winged, or Yellow Chevroned, Parakeet:

I love these little parakeets - they're so animated!

They have the best natural camouflage I've ever seen. You can hear them up in the trees having loud, high-pitched conversation, but search as you might, you'll very rarely see them up there. When they're ready to be seen, anywhere between 4 and 24 of the little rascals will descend on the feeders as if by magic!

Nice looking birds. Are they native to Florida?

What a beautiful bird. I'm assuming they squawk like all parrots do when they get together in a flock :)

I have that feeder on top. They sure clean easily. It's funny to see so much green when our trees are so bare...
