Karen spotted these two Peach-faced Lovebirds while she was in the pool. She got one of my cameras and captured a photo of these two in one of our palm trees.

These Parrots, a native of southwestern Africa, are not a common sight around here, but their population is growing. They have been spotted around my part of Arizona since at least the mid-80s. I've read that there is speculation that someone had these in in aviary and let them loose, but it was unclear to me whether this was done on purpose or by accident.
