Green Parakeets, native to Mexico and south, about a foot long, maybe a tad longer. These were whirling about the sky and landed outside the Blue Onion cafe in McAllen, Texas. We were all impressed by the show and noise. After we had worked up an appetite doing all that admiring, we went in the cafe and ate salads, wraps and pizza. I had mine with an IPA from Real Ales Brewing, Blanco, Texas. I take back (again) all the bad things I wrote about Texas beer. It was excellect. And now, more parakeets than you could shake a stick at.
