I have a few green Parakeets visiting us daily but I certainly don't want to feed the numbers you posted.

I hate to be cliche, but OMG. I've never thought of a huge flock of parrots let alone seen it, so used to seeing the occasional one in a cage. The golden backdrop of earth is gorgeous too!

(I'm sure that applies to parrots too)...

This is a magnificent shot ... the parrots against the cliff face with the green trees above as a balance. I would be very happy to have this one my wall.

Those are more parrots than I have seen in my life. I always thought they were pretty solitary birds. Great picture.

This looks familiar. Someone brought green parrots to south Florida and they have multiplied many times over and they screech and zoom around and create a terrible ruckus!

Sondra said...

WOW what a sight, bet that was thrilling to see!

Pat said...

I've found two collective nouns for Parrots - company and pandemonium. This looks like a pandemonium of Parrots! Great capture!

Wonderful camouflage of the green parrots! Half of them completely blended with the greeneries, I'm sure. This is a photo that tricks the eye!

Genie said...

Just one green parrot would’ve been lovely, but an entire photo filled with them is awesome! The contrast of their green and the ground is striking.
