Today, the conure parrots dropped by in one of my trees. I ran inside to get the camera, but by the time I arrived, they had moved to a neighboring tree. I could hear them all over in trees that were in other yards than mine. This is a picture from a few weeks ago.

But there was a very interesting bird in my tree when I returned to the parrotless tree with camera.

She looked like this when fluffing her feathers.

Speckled Bird

And this from the side:

What kind of bird is she? I don’t know.

About Helen

I'm a Southern California living in South Florida. I've been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I'm a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don't understand. So I'm an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
