Today's Bird: Red-Crowned Parrot

Today's bird is the Red-Crowned Parrot.  You might think I took this photo in Peru or Bolivia, but actually they live right here in lovely Weslaco, Texas.  Most nights when I'm walking the dog I run into the flock that lives in my neighborhood.  I'd been trying for a few weeks to get a good picture.  Then one morning on my way home from the gym, I saw them hanging out on a power line! I rushed home, grabbed my camera and thankfully they were still there! I took this picture in the parking lot of Hair Trix on Westgate Rd. in Weslaco, Texas on 8/22/12.
