Hello there! Yes I know it has been nearly two months since my last post. I had not logged into WordPress in weeks, so I was a bit surprised to see that some of my posts from last year were still driving visitors to the blog. So I figured I should post something new.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this on the blog before, but one of my newer hobbies is bird watching. I gradually added a few feeding stations around my backyard and have been graced by the presence of several types of birds, many of which I never really noticed before.
One species that has made itself known in my backyard is the rosy faced lovebird (sometimes referred to as the peach faced lovebird). Typically see flying together in flocks of at least 5-6, I’ve had as many as 20 hanging around my backyard at the same time.
These birds are actually native to southwest Africa. However, a local aviary let go a flock of these birds approximately 13-14 years ago. The desert climate apparently agreed with these birds as they have thrived in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
From my observations, they love to hang on things and splash around in water.
