Corralitas Drive: Stuff You Missed This Year, Frolicking Parrots

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 23, 2014.  Flocks of feral parrots seemed to descend on the the neighborhood this summer.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

They stayed into the winter.  Just last week I got an email from a Corralitas neighbor, who reported her 2 cats were pinned down by a large noisy flock of parrots that were dive bombing them from the rubber tree above.  She went out swinging a broom at the parrots & they began attacking her, nipping at her hair & clothes.  At least it was a diversion so the cats could get back to the house.  No one was injured.

Stuff You Missed This Year is our annual wrap up of interesting photos and things we just didn't have a chance to run, because everything seems to always happen at the same time.
