by: Tiawanna (Tee) Taylor – It is hard to believe that this is the 6th Cape Parrot newsletter and that I have been putting them together for over a year now. I have had a busy last few months including attending a couple of wildlife crime meetings, hence the delay in this edition. Next month I am off to Cape Town for a few months, I have only passed through briefly before, and will hopefully get lots of research done as it has been piling up a bit recently. I am also looking forward to seeing some of the sites there.
by: Tiawanna (Tee) Taylor – I have had a very busy couple of months trying to complete a number of things off with my own work, write a few talks, write even more funding proposals and attending an interview relating to one of these. Last week I had the pleasure of a trip to Phalaborwa, in addition to seeing a couple of good friends, while there I also gave a talk on the Cape Parrot to the Phalaborwa Bird Club. I had a great time it was good to meet everyone at the bird club
and what a pleasure to speak under a Lapa just inside Kruger Park – what a great venue! Unfortunately I have not yet received details of this years CPBBD count, analysis of the data is still underway, but I am sure it will be ready for the next newsletter and you may see details in the press beforehand.
by: Tiawanna (Tee) Taylor – This month I have included a variety of topics some related directly to the Cape Parrot, others are more distantly related in varying degrees. Any contributions to the next newsletter would be very welcome – especially current items relating to Cape Parrots. Wishing you all the best for 2007.
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!
