Orange-chinned Parakeets

I hear these guys flying over my house most afternoons when it’s not raining hard but they seldom stop on their way up the hill to their roosting tree at my friend Dan’s house. Yesterday afternoon, before the rain started, they flew over and stopped for a little rest and grooming in a neighbor’s tree. I got a few shots, though not good with the overcast sky. But as bad as the photos are, they’re my nature shots for today! 🙂

This first shot is of the tree showing several scattered throughout and then I follow with a gallery of 6 individual birds or couples, with one couple cutely snuggling! 🙂

  1. I too go to nature to be healed. Right now we’re waking up to our last morning in Drake Bay, rain and bats and crashing surf. We were fortunate to see 5 whales and dozens of macaws, among other great experiences.

  2. So glad you guys get to enjoy Drake Bay! A few years back I spent a week at Aguila de Osa Lodge for a fabulous time in nature. Even went snorkeling! But no whales that time. Saw my whales at Uvita.
