Parakeets are everywhere now and some are quite tame. I filmed various people feeding them and it was very entertaining. I have to admit that Parakeets aren't my favourite birds but maybe I need to give them a second chance.
What do you think?

Aw, I think you need to give them a second chance Jean. The fellow eating the apple looks so cute. Mind you if there are a lot about, I suppose if you were trying to feed one or two and they flocked about, it could get out of hand, no pun intended there!!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Great video footage, Love them or hate them, they are attractive birds and one of the true connections with nature has to be having a bird feed from your hand. I was disappointed that last time I visited the London parks there were notices up not to feed the birds which had been one of the highlights of enjoying the parkland.
