Honey Mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa)

Bentsen-Río Grande Valley State Park

Mission, Hidalgo County, Texas 78572

This photo was taken as two persons walked past an ancient example of Honey Mesquite as the species goes. The tree on the right is about 50 feet tall and one can compare its height with that of the Humans walking past it. The tree trunk was easily at least three feet in diameter if not more. Such mature Honey Mesquites can live for more than 100 years, according to this source: https://www.hunker.com/13428741/how-long-does-it-take-to-grow-a-mesquite-tree

Green Parakeet (Psittacara holochlorus)

8 March 2020
Victor Fields City-School Park
700 Dallas Avenue
McAllen, Hidalgo County, Texas

A mixed flock of parrots and parakeets of about 30-60 birds landed on the numerous Anacua (Ehretia anacua) found at the park and proceeded to feed on their fruit and communicate audibly amongst themselves. After feeding for fifteen or twenty minutes they departed in the same way they had arrived, swiftly but precisely and speaking amongst themselves as they went (and perhaps even multi-lingually in bird-speak?).

Here's part of the interesting note on these birds in South Texas adapted from the Wikipedia entry for the species. The note is titled "Distribution":

"The species occurs from southern Texas and northern Mexico (including P. h. brevipes on Socorro Island) south through the Middle American isthmus to southwestern Nicaragua. It inhabits a variety of woody habitats. Since the Carolina parakeet's extinction and the thick-billed parrot's extirpation from the United States in the 1930's, the green parakeet remains the only confirmed native extant parrot species in the U.S. (the red-crowned amazon is considered by some authorities to be native to the Rio Grande Valley, but its status is still debated). In western Nicaragua, their nesting sites lie within the El Chocoyero - El Brujo Protected Area, but the birds still face threats from the outside world when they leave the reserve to feed.

"The A. brevipes subspecies is highly threatened by habitat loss due to feral sheep and predation by feral cats. Surveys from 2006 and 2007 estimated a population around 300 individuals, suggesting a population decline from previous population estimates.

"The native status of populations in southern Texas is unclear, with some claiming them to be feral escapees. However, the groups in the Rio Grande Valley are now generally regarded as naturally occurring and native, because of the proximity of confirmed native populations, the deforestation of Tamaulipas which forced them to disperse, and earlier evidence from 1911 of these parakeets consuming a strawberry harvest at Comb[e]s[, Cameron County, Texas.]"
