Packing up the car this morning, I heard a violent and raucous screeching, and a large  flock of red-crowned Amazonian parrots was flying in, with a great rush of green feathers.  I think there were around 35 of them - by the time I'd gone indoors for my camera, only fifteen or so were left hanging out like musical notations on the telephone wires.  The rest were in some of the trees in front of the house, where they were guzzling on some small round orangey-brown fruit.  Apparently these all come from north-eastern Mexico, where they're an endangered species - not so, it would seem, in Silver Lake.
