Green parakeets, Garry & Homer

 These beautiful but really quite noisy parakeets (a small parrot) live here in the Rio Grande Valley and we are blessed to have flocks of them that roost in the trees of our RV flock. They will fly around the park in the early morning hours and in the dusk hours sitting in the trees and on the wires and then flying around again and again. All day long they are absent as they are out foraging for food in the farm fields. When they are here they make such a racket but it is so pretty to see the flocks of green flying around. Homer's ears go back and his face wrinkles when they fly low over our site - their squawking makes him bark at them .

 This is Garry and Homer. Garry and Barb are our next door neighbors and Homer just loves Garry because he always has treats for him - little bites of doggie bacon!  He'd love Barb as much as Garry if she was the one who was always giving the bacon treats - Truth is Barb has a soft spot too for dog-kids. ;-) If Garry isn't home, Barb has been know to dig out the doggie bacon and make sure Homer got his treats!

Pepe (you met Pepe in the previous post - he is the mini-Chihuahua that lives on our other side) runs away from home on a regular basis and he makes a beeline for either Garry's or our place - the two places he gets treats. ;-)
