Feeding Time in the Back Yard

Some of the trees have loads of seed pods right now, and the birds are often around to take advantage of the abundant food. There were about a dozen Bonairian parakeets scattered around the vacant lot next door. They weren't as noisy as they usually are. Maybe they were too busy eating.

This Prikichi is beginning to work on a seed pod. They seem to be able to get them open and chow down on the individual seeds.

This orange Trupial came along and joined the feast. He seemed to be higher in the pecking order than the Prikichis. At least they gave him plenty of room on the tree. Posted by Picasa
