Forty-Six Wild Cherry-Masked Conure Parakeet Parrot Birds Commuting Home to the Northeast

Monday, September 28th, 2015

For some reason dese boids live in Frisco’s northeast but then commute southwest for feeding on a daily basis.

So in the morning, you see them over the Western Addition going southwest and then in the evening, you see them heading back northwest, as here over the Golden Gate Park Panhandle:

I haven’t ever seen this many in one flight outside of the Coit Tower / FInancial District area.

I went looking for them about a decade ago – this was the view from the Filbert Steps:


It seems there are more birds now, but they’re not hanging out in one big flock anymore. That’s my impression anyway.

Anywho, just recently, I saw about ten crows chasing four red-green conures over the Panhandle – I’ve never seen that before either.

Look to the Skies for Signs and Wonders.

Single Parent Heads to the Western Addition’s “Ghetto Lucky” to Feed Hungry Teenager, Avian Edition

Monday, June 18th, 2012

I’ll tell you, I don’t know why people call the Lucky on Fulton the Ghetto Lucky, but lots of people do.*

Anywho, this was the scene out front the other day – the fledgling on the upper right was getting fed by the parent on the lower left:

These kinds of boids seem to like whatever kind of vegetation the Sav Mart / Albertson’s people put in there. And they’re all over the place now, feeding their hungry kids.

The next step will be how to get inside the Fulton Lucky for some light noshing.

Like this:

Nature is Everywhere.

*Actually, there’s nothing wrong with it. I mean, it’s not Whole Foods or nothing, but maybe that’s a good thing…
