Parrots at Silver Springs Park
There is a rather large entry area coming in to Silver Springs Park. Visitors walk over a bridge and then across a wide open area before buying tickets and going through the gates. Just as one crosses the bridge, you will almost always find a couple of parrots sitting perched on a tree off to the right. They are not tethered in any way and you can get close and talk to them. That's fine. But if you understand what they are saying, you may wish to see professional help.
These two parrots didn't talk to us at all. They simply sat there in regal splendor and one of them actually turned as if to ignore us totally.
But they were pretty. I understand their wings have been clipped so they can't fly away.
