Photographer's Note



The only rainy day during this trip was the Friday after I got to Istanbul. While we were watching the rain, I noticed this parrot eating cherries. Obviously, parrots are not indigenous to Istanbul but they have colonized Emirgan Park and seem to be quite happy with their adopted home. According to Wikipedia, they are rose-ringed parakeets, of which there are several populations in Istanbul, both on the European side where they can be seen in Gülhane Park, Yıldız Park and Eyüp, and on the Asian side.

Tuhaf bir Kiraz Yaprağı

Bu gezi sırasında tek yağmurlu gün İstanbul'a geldikten sonraki Cuma idi. Biz yağmuru izliyorken, kiraz yiyen bu papağanı fark ettim. Bellidir ki, papağanlar İstanbul'a yerli değildir ama onlar Emirgan Parkı’nı kolonize etmişler ve yeni seçtikleri evlerinde oldukça mutlu görünüyorlar. Vikipedi'ye göre, onlar İstanbul'da birkaç popülasyonlarının hem Avrupa yakasında Gülhane Parkı, Yıldız Parkı ve Eyüp'te görülebilen hem ve Asya yakasında var olan gül-halkalı muhabbetkuşudur.
