Next month is the first World Parrot Count. This count is organized by the “extra-tropical“ department of the parrot researchers group of the International Ornithological Union (IOU) and is being led by Roelant Jonker (CML Leiden University) and Michael Braun (Heidelberg University). It is designed to help us monitor urban parrot populations around the world. If there are parrots in your neighborhood or local communities, help us out by helping us count them. For more information on the count, check out the World Parrot Count web page.
I will be helping to coordinate the count in the United States, so you can contact me (Rob Fergus) for more information at birdchaser AT hotmail.com.
