Weekend Photoblogging

Wild Parrot Feeder
Originally uploaded by Dawn Endico.

From Dawn Endico comes this incredibly colorful shot of cherry-headed conures (Aratinga erythrogenys) being fed at Ferry Park in San Francisco, California. I was going to go on a bit about the whole parrot scene there but Dawn does such a good job of describing it (and linking it up) that you should just go visit the Flickr page for this photo. As a parrot owner, I think I can understand the joy this guy is feeling having the birds perching on him and enjoying their food, but as Dawn points out the feeding of these feral birds is generating some controversy and could soon be ending.

Bonus points to Dawn for sharing this photo under a Creative Commons license.
