IMG_2395 Peace-faced Lovebird

After pulling myself away from the Baikal Teal, I walked the paths at Gilbert Riparian Preserve and was treated to a pair of Peach-faced Lovebirds who were working the trees with a small flock of Red-winged Blackbirds. Often kept as pets in America, these birds are native to South-Western Africa but have successfully adapted to living wild in Arizona.
