Colorful Red-crowned Parrot at Valley Nature Center

This pretty Red-crowned Parrot is roosting in a nest box just outside the Valley Nature Center. This species of parrot, contrary to several other parrot species that are thought to be escapees, has been determined to be a 'naturally occurring' species though there are also some escaped specimens in the 'Texas Rio Grande delta.' It isn't known yet if this bird will be nesting here. SeEtta
