Peach-faced Lovebirds

I don't usually post twice in one day, but this was such a cool sighting I had to let you know about it.  I glanced out the window at the feeders this morning and couldn't believe it; there was a Peach-faced Lovebird (Agapornis roseicollis) at one of the feeders.  I grabbed my camera and before I could get a picture, it flew from the feeder to the overhead electrical wires and that was when I noticed a second one.  I managed to get a shot just before they flew off.  I'm hoping they'll be back, now that they know there's a food source available.  In researching the birds, I came across this article on the thriving colonies of Peach-faced Lovebirds in the Phoenix area that I thought you might find interesting.
