Red-crowned Parrot Survey

Make a scientific contribution by joining the quarterly count of these wild officially-endangered birds, with less than 2000 wild birds remaining!

Meet at Gibson Park in front of Valley Nature Center on Border Avenue near Business 83 at dusk, and be prepared to caravan to locations throughout Weslaco as we search for these beautiful and noisy, yet mysterious and rare Red-crowned Parrots.   Binoculars, GPS units, and smartphones would be helpful.  No fees, not even Park admission required.

As always, contact your local city coordinator if you would like to volunteer for another city:

Brownsville: Karl Berg (

Harlingen: Sue Griffin (

Weslaco: John Yochum (

McAllen: Javier DeLeon
