Amidst a Concrete Jungle


Perched high within oak

Squawking loudly to approach

Of encroaching folk.


I looked at my Lab

Saying, “We’ve invaded here.”

Sadly, we knew, “BAD!”

    • Such a beautiful treat! Usually falcon or red-tailed hawk occupy the area. I can only imagine what they thought when they witnessed the size and brilliant colors of that parrot.


  3. Vivid and surprising! Beautiful.

    • Living in suburbia, this was such a treat. Usually we will sight a coyote, possum or a raccoon, but the loveliness and unexpected beauty of the bird truly caught me off guard. I was so glad I had my camera phone with me.

    • Just this afternoon, while walking the same route, I met the gentleman that owns her. He also has two other parrots, smaller in size.
      The young lady, in the photo, is twenty. She’s a red Macaw parrot.


    • Rather amazing that he can let them fly free and they return to him! What a trusting bond that must be.

    • I really wonder if they are totally free, or clipped? My next question should I have the opportunity to visit with him again.
      (He explained to me that the Macaw is the breed of parrot that grows the longest tail feathers.)

    • Two blocks up, one block down. Remember where the fire station is? One block up, living at the Spanish-styled home. That beautiful bird caught my attention about a year ago. They allow it out on nice days. Hannah and I are both mesmerized by her/him. I wish I would have had my other camera with me. Simply stunning! XO❤️
