Blue-crowned Conures

My wife and I had two unexpected parrot encounters today. The first was a small flock of parrots that flew past the car while we were waiting in traffic. I didn’t get a good enough look at them for identification.

When we got to our destination, two parrots flew into a tree nearby (where I took this photograph). It took a bit of web and field guide research to determine these are Blue-crowned Conures (the small flock was likely the same species). I saw them last year near the Post Office (along US 1). The small flock was seen not far from the Post Office, and this photograph was taken just a mile or so north of there. I’ve heard there is a nesting colony beachside of the causeway, but I don’t know if these are the same birds or not.
