Parakeets living the high life: sky lofts and all you can eat buffets

Recently we were out at the lake and we found a family of parakeets.There were well over 20 of them. At first we just saw a few of them fly by. But when we listened closely and we could hear many more making an whole lot of Ruckus. Following their sounds, we were led to their Sky Loft. It was a series of about 8 or 10 different nests high up in the power lines.

Many of the birds were hard at work, apparently constructing more nests….

But later in the afternoon, they must have gotten hungry because we  stumbled upon their feeding ground. and boy they had come for a feast!

We found the parakeets gorging themselves on a sea of acorns that had accumulated beneath several large trees.

And then a little while later, we found a few Parakeets who decided they’d be having fresh grass for desert.

It was an exciting day so we thought we’d share. Hope you enjoyed the photos.
