Spring Break Parrots
The feral San Francisco parrots are something I've heard about for a long time [there's a book and a documentary] but never experienced. Wow. They gather round like pigeons, but they're bright and raucous. They nip the cherry blossoms and drop them and go on to the next one. I don't know what they're going for there, maybe the juicy innards. Sometimes they're hanging upside down doing it. They squabble like siblings, also sometimes upside down. They have hard little black tongues. They land on your head. They nibble ears. They make a lot of noise, but don't talk.

As seen with Victoria and Pete Beck.
