We day tripped to San Francisco yesterday and got to see our favorite thing in SF, the cherry heads. It was mating season and the flock was going crazy and so loud it was like music to our ears. They were swooping down right past us and just going nuts. We took Carissa's boyfriend with us and he hadnt even heard of these conures before but after we left the park I think he was hooked on them too, who couldnt love seeing them. I know I sure love them.
What are doing down there?
This bird is obviously in love with the bird he is looking at, look at its fat head!
How would you like to look up and see this bird on your post outside?
Love on the light post.
Can you imagine living beside these cuties?
Preening and loving time
Feels soooo good!
The same couple
This one flew into the tree right above Carissa's head
Once the sun went down and the park didnt have anymore sun all the birds at once took off and did about 5 circles above our heads and then settled down into the top of the tallest tree there. They were ready to get ready for bed time. The noise they were making during the flight was incredible and now that I think about it we should have taken a video of it all because I know it is something all of you would have loved to witness too. This is the only good photo we could get because these birds are super fast and the area above us is surrounded by sky scrapers so you couldnt see the entire flock at once.
