Parrots and Valley Hepatic Tanager

Red-crowned Parrots near nest their cavity at a park near Weslaco April 4, 2010.

One this same day I found a female or first year male Hepatic Tanager in a Mulberry Tree with ripe fruit in the cemetery adjacent to the Frontera Audubon Sanctuary.
This species is a real rarity for the LRGV.  Unfortunately I was not able to obtain photos before a pick-up drove below the tree and flushed the bird.
