I saw a flock of nine winging overhead today. The word in the neighbourhood is that they have been around for a few weeks but I havn't managed to get a photo yet. Borrowed this photo from my neighbour Colleen.

Fish Hatchery Rd is off of Landslide Rd by Hiawatha Highlands Conservation Area.

i wonder if they had been someones pet and they escaped, flew south for the winter and then decided to come back and make this their summer home?

The group I saw flying had nine so I doubt they are escapees. I think they may be black-hooded parakeets from what i can find on the net.
