A family staying on the 22nd floor of the Miami Marriott Dadeland caught snapshots of two of Florida's more colorful residents, a pair of parrots, who were taking shelter from the beginnings of what is expected to be a very powerful storm.

U.S. parrots are found in the greatest numbers in parts of South Florida and California, according to the National Wildlife Federation.
