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.
