Luftwaffe Parrots

 My father was an Air Force pilot. He flew B-26s in Korea and just about everything with wings or rotors in Viet Nam. Back in the late 70s, when we were building a house in SoCal, he liked to say that blue jays were the worst flyers of all. Lots of flapping of wings, not much lift or agility.

For me, the SoCal green parrots look and fly like Luftwaffe He-111s.

Maybe it's just me.

My parents had an apple orchard in Tasmania, and they had a terrible time with parrot raids. They flew in just like the ones in your picture, dived into the trees, and swiped apples wholesale. Kind of a reverse bombing run.
