In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman
I am not one to get too excited about introduced, non-native bird species. I am much more thrilled to see birds that are living right where their ancestors have always lived. However, I was kind of looking forward to seeing the flock of Red-masked Parakeets that were made famous by the book, The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.Earlier this month when I was in San Francisco I found the parakeets and was able to photograph several of these colorful birds.
Three Red-masked Parakeets
These parakeets are quite noisy, and I would get quite tired of their incessant screeching if a flock lived in my neighborhood. So, I think I will continue living in South Dakota I will just enjoy the exotic wild parrots of telegraph hill on my next visit to San Francisco.
