QUAKER PARROT sighting in MISSION VIEJO, CA
Posted 18 April 2008 - 02:00 AM
Just about five minutes ago i was sitting checking the forums:cool:... and I heard a weird call and I thought to myself "thats a funny call for a crow":eek: and I looked out my window to see a quaker parrot (monk parakeet) flying over head. Truly spectacular! From what I could see it was fully flighted (no sign of clipped wings).
on a side note my friend did say he was hearing some weird bird noises lately (he lives across the street) and His mini apple trees are being desimated!
So I think he has escaped from his family recently and I am sure he is missed!
If I see him again, I will try to catch him.
I'll keep you guys posted!

How cool -- I will have to tell my friends in MV to keep an eye out. We had an orange grove in El Toro when I was a kid.
Oh, I lived in base housing right next to the orange groves. Those were the days. I also worked at Crown Valley Animal Hospital on CV Parkway.
I miss somethings about SoCal.
