The singing song thrush was not the only bird today.
On the canal bank, an adult and an immature herring gull. Now that the soil is not frozen like on other winter days, they tried to catch worms. Close to them, a coot started swimming.
A bit further, two ring-necked parakeets, calling in a leafless deciduous treetop. A bit later, they flew away, still calling.
This video from California in the USA says about itself:
Wild Rose-ringed Parakeets, Ring-necked, Psittacula krameri
The largest North American population of naturalized Rose-ringed Parakeets, Psittacula krameri, lives in Bakersfield, CA.
This is video I took of this parakeet in the trees in my backyard this morning. I am Blessed with these BEAUTIFUL birds every day.
Unrelated to birds … well, not completely, as it includes my firefinch Gravatar … I have added a page to this blog. It is my second page ever, after my About page. The new page is called Frequently asked questions. It is here.
