Carolina Parrot

"...thirty miles above the mouth of the Kentucky river, I saw them in great numbers. They came screaming through the woods in the morning, about an hour after sunrise, to drink the salt water, of hich they, as well as the pigeons, are remarkably fond. When they alighted on the ground, it appeared at a distance as if covered with a carpet of the richest green, orange, and yellow: they afterwards settled, in one body, on a neighbouring tree, which stood detached from any other, coving almostt every twig of it, and the sun, shining strongly on their gay and glossy plumage, produced a very beautiful and splendid appearance."
