Lynda emails that Maple Leaf’s resident Scarlet-fronted parakeets returned on Monday.

“I heard and then saw three of our Scarlet-fronted parakeets flying over my yard at 12th Avenue Northeast  and Northeast 90th Street about 9:30 this morning.

“Why any bird would want to migrate for the winter to the north and higher elevation (from Seward Park) I don’t know, but I’m glad they still are around to do it.”
