We tried to brave the high winds the past two days to see the parrot roasts, first in Brownsville last night, and in Weslaco tonight. A couple of points that may be of use to those considering going s to see them. Last night at Oliviera Park in Brownsville a few Red-crowned Parrots briefly came to the Southwest corner of the park by the ball field about 10 minutes before sundown. However they quickly took off and joined the large flock in a neighborhood southeast of the park maybe a mile away. We left about 30 minutes after sundown and I am not aware they returned to Oliviera Park.
Tonight we went to Valley Nature Center to watch for the parrots. Six red-lored parrots briefly came into the park before leaving again with a large flock to the south of the park. We tracked them to the corner of Border Street and 6th Street where they roasted on electric wires. I counted 71 parrots, all red-crowns except 2 red-lored and 1 yellow headed. Shortly after sundown another group of 30 parrots flew in the distance. Theses 71 then took off to parts unknown.
Not sure if the high winds affected their roosting patterns. But hope this is helpful if you go looking
