I was not surprised to find a couple of Red-lored Parrots in the bunch.
At first I thought this was a Lilac-crowned Parrots but now I think it's a young Red-lored. Comments are welcome.
I think this is a Lilac-crowned but I'm not sure. Maybe it's a young Red-lored. The ID of Red-crowned and Lilac-crowned Parrot in Mexico is not a problem as Red-crowns occur in NE Mexico while Lilac-crowns occur on the west coast. But here in the RGV they can occur in flocks together which makes things confusing as female Red-crowns have the red crowned reduced to just the front with a blue crown. I think a lot of these birds go misidentified as Lilac-crowned Parrot.
I counted 120 in the neighbors budding cottonwood and then saw others coming in while more were feeding in a fruiting palm. At about 6:10 they decide it was time to go and the whole flock exploded from the trees with a cacophony of screams and squawks. They circled overhead a couple of times before heading west. I counted 192 in this photo.
