Waikiki Is Going to The Birds

All I can say about Friday, our first day in Waikiki, is that it was totally for the birds!  There we were, walking down Kalakaua Avenue on our way to lunch and we came across these:

Waikiki parakeets

Two Parakeets in Waikiki

Their wings are clipped. They couldn’t fly so someone had to put them in that bush, which was in a planter, which sat in the middle of a busy Waikiki Sidewalk in front of a row of busy Waikiki Shops.

Amoeba said he doubted they’d stay there very long. The reason he said that was because no one emerged from the shops to watch or question us when Amoeba reached down and picked up one of the birds for a better photo op.


We continued our stroll and a couple of blocks later we encountered this lady:

parrott lady

A woman on Kalakaua Street in Waikiki. She has a Macaw on her shoulder and a Eclectus Parrot on her wrist.

She made Amoeba very happy. Can you tell?

The blue bird is a Macaw. The white bird is a Cockatoo. The green bird is an Eclectus Parrot.

My Feathered Friends & I.

I also held the pretty birds.

And we held the pretty birds together and the nice Bird Lady took our photo — and my $10.00 bill. đŸ˜‰
