Wild...Just Plain Wild

The first morning here in Aruba, I hit the beach for my early morning walk, then the Butterfly Farm just as I planned. On my way back to the resort, however, a pleasant surprise was in the shade trees that lined the road near the bus stop.


The wild parakeets, chatting loudly and nibbling at the fruit, filled the tree branches and to my surprise, I was able to get a few pix!

Sharing with you and those at

One more thing. I am having a difficult time posting, commenting. Since I'm inexperienced with BLOGSY, this is the only way I know how to do links for now. Apologizing for inadequacies...:(

  3. I loved my parakeet and so wish I could see them in the wild. In Pasadena, we had wild parrots, which is sort of unusual for a city here in CA. I hope you are having a wonderful time, well, I know you are.

  4. That's so neat to see. My grandparents used to spend winters in Florida and there were wild parakeets in the trailer park. Everyone had bird feeders.

  5. I was reading blogs. This lady doesn't live too far from me. I've seen an occasional parakeet over the years that I assume got loose, but I've never had this in my backyard. I think that's where she took it.
