A flock of… Mexican Parrots?

A few minutes ago, I received a call from Glendale resident Nancy Drury. She wanted to let me know a flock of between 10 and 20 bright green birds were having a lovely time munching on her mangoes. Drury was far from displeased about the fruit theft — instead, she was in awe that tropical birds, munching on tropical fruit, would be in the rather non-tropical environs of Kenneth Village.

“We have mangoes, lemons, all sorts of thing,” Drury said with a laugh. “The squirrels love us too.”

She was hoping that we could get a photographer out to catch the southern travelers… Though not today.

“They’re usually gone by about 9 a.m. or so,” she said. “But they’re back most mornings.”

That’s a pretty good tale to start the morning. Have a good day everyone.
