Coming home from the R, I passed the 13th Street laundomat on Fourth & saw a cage containing two very handsome parrots.  They were talking, but beyond "Hi!" it was hard to figure out what they were saying.  A hipster couple on their way to Greenwood Cemetery wanted to know if they were Monk parrots & I quickly put them straight  (that's about the extent of my parrot knowledge).

Over on 17th, I found David, who was embarking on a mammoth front yard display of animal life, with hundreds of big cats, dinosaurs, & their prey.  I love this!  When my kids were little, I probably had as much fun (more?) as they did creating animal parades with our huge collection of plastic animals.  It's good to see someone else getting into it.  I'll try & get back when he's finished putting the scene together.

Loved the shots of the birds! I had a pet cockatiel once a long time ago. And that animal parade is too cool! Can't wait to see the finished results!

Wanted to get back to the parade today, but couldn't do it. Tomorrow!
