Of course the day I don't bring my camera is the day they come and hang out in the parking lot for a long time.

These parrots have lived in Sunnyvale for years, and can reliably be heard and/or seen around El Camino & Matilda. They must be breeding, since I counted 38 of them.

Smallish green parrots (like conure sized), some with more or less red on their faces and heads.

Description

An old orchard tree from long ago, overtaken by its black walnut rootstock a while back. The drought has killed the English Walnut tops of several other trees that used to be quite large, so soon there will be more native black walnut-topped trees.

The only photo I got, as after this it scrambled onto my hand and was reflexively flung across the yard somewhere. It had made a little alcove by webbing some sunchoke leaves loosely together.
