For years I have wanted some decent pictures of green parrots that live in Manhattan Beach. I have either had no camera at the right time or a camera at the wrong time. Today, while I did not have my favorite camera with me, I had a nice Canon point and shoot. They are beautiful birds with an ugly call. The parrots are not native here, but they are from escapees from a local pet store years ago. They have created their own colonies and now thrive here. From what I have read their numbers are now int he 100s.
