Parrot People,

 Please don’t forget our Valley-wide roost survey for Red-crowned Parrots on Friday, January 15th (see attached flyer).

 The day after that, for those who are available, please join us at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning at Estero Llano Grande State Park in Weslaco for a countdown of the results, discussion on how things went, and how things can be improved in the future.

 Also, researchers from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and Texas A&M University will be there to discuss two projects that TPWD funded on Red-crowned Parrots in the Valley.  Come see what’s planned and how you can get involved.

 Parrot People is now up to 26 interested folks (see list below).  Please spread the word and have others join us for the two aforementioned events in mid-January in the Valley.  Like the parrot, we encourage large flocks!

 Happy holidays,

Cliff Shackelford
