So we live by an airport, and planes fly by. You actually get use to it, the loud sound of the planes and all. You just learn to stop your conversations, or turn up the volume on your ipod and wait for it to pass. We have another loud shrieking sound that we hear as well, but this is not from a plane or a man made 747. These screeches come from what the locals call the OB Parrots.
Rumor has it many years ago someone released five parrot’s into the wild. Well, years went by and they advanced their kind, now there is well over 100 of them. They, like many other creatures have made Ocean Beach San Diego their home.
They are pretty birds, with distinct green and red feathers, but most people can’t stand them. That is when they post up on the telephone wires outside your house at 6:30 AM and like a military regiment call start screeching away at full boar. I personally get a kick out of it because I am already up and running or working, but I get the feeling that most of the laid back neighbors may not.
They always travel in pairs or groups. This guy and his gal were hitting up the sunflowers early.
