Report on the 2010 Cape Parrot Big Birding Day

23 June, 2010 | Uncategorized | By: Craig (Thor's Dad)

by: Colleen T. Downs & Meyrick Bowker, At least 1050 parrots were seen during the afternoon 3
count while 1263 were seen the following morning. Numbers were lower
than they were in 2009, but this is possibly a consequence of reduced coverage in
2010.

Report on the 2007 Cape Parrot Big Birding Day

23 May, 2007 | Uncategorized | By: Craig (Thor's Dad)

by: Prof. Colleen T. Downs, I think we can be proud that we have done this for 10 years and that many of you have loyally been involved over this time. I think the greatest value has been increased awareness of Cape Parrots and of their forest habitat. I am collating the data for the 10 year period to produce more detailed distribution maps, and to model the population dynamics.

Cape Parrot Newsletter – Number 1

21 November, 2006 | Uncategorized | By: Craig (Thor's Dad)

by: Tiawanna (Tee) Taylor – Well here it is, my first Cape Parrot Newsletter! It has been really great to hear from people both in South Africa, and internationally, who are interested in the Cape Parrot. I hope that this newsletter will over time manage to cover a wide range of issues that may interest to you. Thanks to all the people who have submitted something for this newsletter. My intention is to keep the newsletter open to all potential articles and try to cover all interests relating to the Cape Parrot. Be that projects undertaken by groups to projects run by individuals or organisations who’s impacts on the CP, to observations or comments about wild Capes in the field (or pinching your Pecan nuts) to captive breeding issues etc. As I tend to be stuck in an office all day I’m relying on you guys to supply the information, articles and some photos to brighten the pages!
