Parakeets gone wild!

I had just left my house and was driving around the corner, when I was forced to stop the car.  One of my neighbors has a collection of birdhouses and bird feeders in their front yard and they must have recently put out some more food because there was a great commotion going on!

I had heard there were trees full of parrots and parakeets in the Marigny, but I had never seen any up here in the Riverbend until now.  Three wild parakeets managed to fend off a group of at least 100 smaller birds time and time again as I stood there snapping pictures.  I guess no one messes with a budgie!
