Trip leader: Larry Allen
The communal roosts of wild Amazon parrots must make up one of the greatest birding spectacles in Southern California. We are lucky here in Pasadena to be at the epicenter of these incredible roosts and to be able to enjoy the incredible color and the raucous noise of these birds. Join Larry Allen for an evening watching enjoying this incredible show, learn how to identify some of the different species that make up the flocks and some of the history of the parrots that make up these feral flocks.
