Dear Family and Friends,
My friend, Nancy, told me about feral parrots living in Cuenca. There are about 30 -40 of them. Sometimes you can see them flying near the Tomebomba river. They are native to the coast of Ecuador.
Yesterday I got a real treat. Karen Kimbler and I were at our new condo and heard something that sounded like crows. To our delight, these beautiful parrots were on the terrace wall enjoying themselves.
I looked them up on line. They are called Red-Masked Parakeets. Much larger than what we think of parakeets. They like to eat tropical fruit and nuts.
I think I'll put some fruit out in a dish and see if I can entice them to come visit more often.
Hope your day is going great.
