Several large groups of parakeets and amazon type parrots were found in
Temple City area of Los Angeles this last Saturday (11-2-02). Details
Red-masked and Mitred Parakeets were found in the area around Rio Hondo
School (Daines Dr. and Lenore Ave.). First birds showed up about 3:30
Good light and great views. By 4:30 PM there were hundreds. About 4:45
four Red-fronted Parrots showed up.
Red-fronted Parrots (ca. 1000 birds) showed up at a roost just before
This was just east of Daines and Pal Mal on Daines. When we got there it
was too dark to get color on the birds. Some of these birds came in from
East but most from the West.
A Yellow-chevroned Parakeet was seen at the wash near Daines and
A single bird flyover at 10:00 AM.
My impression from this single day's birding is that parakeets and
don't roost together. Parakeets are in their roosting areas well before
dark. And that amazon parrots come in to their roost very late. My mag
light wasn't enough for good color but I did get white eye shine.
