New Neighbors?

There's been a screeching flock of Green Parakeets in the neighborhood lately. This evening a pair of them was checking out this hole in the neighbor's palm tree. This tree was stuck by lightning and caught fire (quite an experience) a couple of years ago and now has finally died. I don't know who is responsible for the hole as it seems too big for the parakeets. The Red-crowned Parrots may have dug it out. Not a great pic against the gray evening sky. Hope these guys hang around.

I checked out Frontera Audubon thicket this past Monday and found this migrant Louisiana Waterthrush along the boardwalk. Not many other migrants going through yet.
