My initial surprise about the green parakeets living in Amsterdam is now long gone. But I’m still excited every time I see these beautiful green birds flying from tree to tree or visiting my balcony in their search for food. Seeing the budgies up-close doesn’t happen often, that’s why I was very happy to find a feeding spot in the Jordaan neighbourhood, where I could watch them feed and quarrel about who gets the best seeds or best place on the tree. 

Aren’t they just super cute?!
