I bet it can get pretty noisy when these parrots squawk.
They are so beautiful!

There's a flock of green parrots that fly over the house almost everyday.
They used to come into my neighbor's very tall Eucalyptus and telephone wires sometimes. Now that the tall Eucalytus trees are

Wohlibuli there are other bird photos I've posted that your son might like - kookaburra, dollarbird, sunbird, kingfisher, dusky honeyeater, sulphur-crested cockatoo, spangled drongo and some others - all fantastic aussie birds.

Janey and Delonix you're right - these particular birds are very noisy. They squawk very loudly - that's how I knew they were in the neighbour's very tall tree! When there's a flock of them the noise is incredible!

Thank you Bernieh,
I had most of them already, but will go back to pick up the ones I missed. He has always loved birds.
A funny story. When he was 3 years old we were in a pet store looking at the cage birds and a little girl came running up yelling "Look at the birdie" He turned to her and said " It's a Scarlet Macaw!" my jaw really dropped. : )

Bernieh:

How did I know I was correct...about the squawking. LOL

Well, because we have wild parrots here in San Diego also.
There's a flock of parrots that fly over my house almost everyday.
The parrots occasionally used to stop in my neighbor's 10
130 foot/ 40 meters Eucalyptus tress, before they were cut down last year...due to the liability of falling branches.
Sometimes, I still see the parrots on the telephone wires.
