A potential home for naturalized Amazons
California neighborhoods where naturalized Amazons make their homes.

I took my two dogs for a walk this morning and no sooner had I reached the end of the block then a flock of Amazons flew over. Noisy and rambunctious, they flew into the trees lining the street I walked on. Now this is a common sight in my neighborhood, but I thought taking some pictures of my playful green neighbors for my blog would be a good idea. Unfortunately, trying to take photos with my cell phone while walking two dogs is not a good idea. The leashes became tangled and it was hard to hold the cell phone still. What’s more, the birds didn't appreciate all the commotion. They flew off and I didn't get any good shots. So I took the dogs back to the house, grabbed my Canon PowerShot and took a walk in my neighborhood. I walked for 20 minutes all around and took a number of photos, but none of them were of the parrots. I could hear them from time to time, calling to each other as they flew around nearby &mdashl; taunting me. But alas, I didn't get a single photo. However, I am enclosing all the photos I did get so you can see the kind of California neighborhood that naturalized Amazons and conures make their home.

For those of us that don't know where your neighborhood is in Ca, could it be Telegraph
Hill, South Bay area of Redondo Beach, or where else?
Thanks for the pictures and hope one day to see
a wild flock myself.
