Here's an awesome image from Ike's Art that is was a freebie on her Challenge Blog, Ike'sWorld Challenges.  They are having an awesome contest this week and this is one of the fun images that you can use for it!  This image is also available in her store, it's called Quirky Parrot.  I totally love it as I love in an area in Austin, TX where there are a lot of feral parrots, so outside my house I may see parrots just flying around.

You can hear them from so far away!  They make SO much noise. Then there's a season where there's migration (not of those who live in Austin) of the parrots to Mexico and then you see tree FULL of them, it's just WOW....
