World Bird Wednesday

I have never Posted on this MEME before so here goes I shall start today coss I am feeling a bit better. Here goes post this before I head back to bed..I live in Margate in England  many many thousand of miles from the Himalayas the traditional home of this non native species. I assume they are decendants of escaped cage birds and are now so well established that they are UK CITIZENS'

  1. Beautiful little parrots. It is always sad to see birds that have been transplanted to strange countries, even if these have made it to successfully colonise. So often they become unwelcome pests.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  5. You did good, Don! The parrots are beautiful and must look really strange in the wild of the UK. Hope you are feeling much better today.

  6. These Rose-ringed Parakeets look so out of place in the snow. You have certainly captured them beautifully though Don!

  7. Such beautiful birds, and seeing them is like a breath of fresh air.
    They've not reached my part of the country yet.

  8. I just shake my head at the ability of life to adapt. If you have to have an invader this is certainly a beautiful looking one. Welcome to World Bird Wednesday!

  9. Nice photos of the parrots. They are very adaptable birds to live there in the cold and snow.
