Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, September 02, 2021

This morning*, while swinging into work, there was a good-sized flock of local parrots walking around the entranceway of my parking lot, looking for food. As I slowed down to roll in, the group of them sprung up into the sky, like a scattered green flash, to avoid getting crushed. (They all made it.)

Wild parrots hanging out in a metropolitan downtown parking lot. Only in F-L-A.

*Actually, this happened yesterday morning. But the telling loses something with the 24-hour delay, so I’m taking slight artistic license.

  1. Those beautiful parrots hang around here because they like to eat the berries from the trees. When they eat the berries, they get drunk. And just like most drunks, they start their loud, obnoxious screeching. Be careful, they may dive-bomb you.

  2. So that’s why the little bastards are always screeching when they show up outside our windows… Probably also why they’re trying to perch on our non-existent window sills, and make nests in the storm gutters.
