Parrots In the Tree + More Postcards

Nothing political today, just a flock of squawking animals...maybe it is political. Just kidding.
Today I am sharing a photo taken on my sister's street in Orange, California where a flock of parrots resides. Wild parrots in the O.C.  Click here to read an article about it.





















And I received two lovely postcards this week, too! One from Donna at Mainly Write and one from Jone at Check It Out! I love poetry postcards! *swoon*













Poetry Friday fun will be hosted by Penny at  A Penny and Her Jots

    1. Thanks, Kay! I know, right? Crazy how the parrots are all over Orange County now. Very cool, but noisy. =)

  2. I cannot imagine living in a place that has wild parrots! How exciting! I love parrots - they're so intelligent and sociable, and really do deserve to be flying free with their feathered family and friends.

    1. Thanks, Jane! Yes, it's cool to see these huge green birds that you usually see in cages in people's homes or the zoo, up in the trees. =)

  3. Love the postcards, shared some today too. Bridget, when I was in San Fran with students, there was a flock of parrots there in one area, too. We were amazed. Love your poem, that "deafening cacophony."

  4. I had no idea parrots had moved to Orange County. I wonder if they say "Oh My God".

    1. I wouldn't be surprised, Brenda. I'm sure the amount of people standing below the trees they are perched in utter quite a few OMG's. =)

  5. It's nice that they are wild and free, albeit annoyingly loud!

    1. I agree, Tabatha! Birds belong in trees, not cages. I think the volume of their chatter lends to their charm, but then again, I don't live down the street from them. =)
