Bird Post #989.

 I don’t have native bird pictures today, although these are wild birds in warmer climates. These tropical birds are residents of a garden center in Winchester. 

Wild Bird Wednesday 


  1. It fills me with sadness that the Carolina Parakeet, our only native parrot, was driven to extinction by the senseless, cruel, unmitigated slaughter of humans.

  2. We don't have wild parrots in the UK. Unless you count feral/escape Rose-ringed Parakeets that originated in Asia.


The View from Squirrel Ridge features thousands of views of the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding area. I post frequently so please visit often.
