Hey that's a great idea. If the birds will not come out after noon for Laurie, you just need to ... "Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks." (Lazarus Long)

You smart ass Alex!! LOL Actually, I think Marco's lying about all these wild parrots he keeps talking about. He wakes up so damn early, I think he's just dreaming he sees them!
By the way, I don't sleep til noon, more like 8:30'ish. If those damn parrots come any earlier than that, well...there's no life before that time anyways!

Lol. I find most of my conures to be a little hesitant about new things. Perhaps it is a conure ... placed a similar coloured wooden toy at the far end from where the birds were perched. Oi loikes amazons :0)

Not surprising. Notice when Marco talks about the wild Parrots where he is now the Amazons are the top of the pecking order. Running off Crows, which are tough birds, but do not seem to want to take on the angry Amazons

Can wild parrots take advantage of bird houses? Do people feed them? Florida has a lot of feral Quaker parrots. They have kind of a raucous noise from what I've heard. I like the sound of flocks of wild or untamed flight budgies. But I bet a pair of parrots would probably destroy a birdhouse?

Who me?? NO WAY!!
I was just trying to help. I figure when you get up at, hmmm, (well it must be 8:30 somewhere), Marco can do his voodoo rain dance and the Parrots will come out to play in the rain.

Don't know about the bird houses but they certainly can be fed. There was a story on the news a while back showed a woman in TX feeding wild Quakers. She had a large trough feeder, and while she was filling it with seed there were Quakers all over it. The Parrots on Telegraph Hill in CA are another example.
I'm sure many people who live around them do feed them.
