I have just dropped off my wife at her work in San Gabriel and was on my way to Bonelli Park for another look at the courtship rituals of grebes. Just a block away I saw a pair of Red-crowned Parrots perched on electrical wires above the street. I quickly parked the Jeep, grabbed my camera and started shooting away. Red-crowneds are by far the most common feral parrots in the San Gabriel Valley. I have seen Mitred, Red-faced, Blue-crowned and Yellow-chevroned Parakeets around here as well.
Here is a picture that I thought is really begging for a caption. So my dear friends, how about having a go at it?
